  • 00:07:43.210 --> 00:07:45.180
  • - TWO AND A HALF YEAR OLD SON AT HOME, AND
  • 00:07:45.200 --> 00:07:47.030
  • WE'VE GOT OUR SECOND ONE THAT WILL BE HERE IN TWO
  • 00:07:47.050 --> 00:07:51.040
  • WEEKS OR LESS, WHATEVER.
  • 00:07:51.060 --> 00:07:53.090
  • HOPEFULLY NOT IN THE NEXT LITTLE BIT, BUT YEAH OUR
  • 00:07:53.110 --> 00:07:56.190
  • SECOND BOY NASH.
  • 00:07:56.210 --> 00:07:59.060
  • - COME ON, NASH.
  • 00:07:59.080 --> 00:08:01.020
  • SO THERE'S SOMETHING IN THE WATER IN CINCINNATI.
  • 00:08:01.040 --> 00:08:03.170
  • - YES - OBVIOUSLY.
  • 00:08:03.190 --> 00:08:06.000
  • NOW TELL ME, HONESTLY JJ BECAUSE THIS IS
  • 00:08:06.020 --> 00:08:09.290
  • QUITE, YOU KNEW THEN YOU WERE GONNA MARRY
  • 00:08:10.010 --> 00:08:12.130
  • A PROFESSIONAL FOOTBALL PLAYER.
  • 00:08:12.150 --> 00:08:13.210
  • - YES.
  • 00:08:13.230 --> 00:08:15.120
  • - SO AS A CHICK, YOU YOU'RE FINISHING SCHOOL,
  • 00:08:15.140 --> 00:08:17.060
  • WHAT WERE YOU STUDYING TO DO?
  • 00:08:17.080 --> 00:08:18.130
  • - MARKETING.
  • 00:08:18.150 --> 00:08:19.170
  • - OKAY.
  • 00:08:19.190 --> 00:08:20.250
  • - IN MARKETING, I HAD HAD AN INTERNSHIP MY
  • 00:08:20.270 --> 00:08:23.200
  • SENIOR YEAR, AND THEN THEY HIRED ME ON THAT
  • 00:08:23.220 --> 00:08:26.080
  • NEXT CHUNK OF TIME BEFORE WE GOT MARRIED, AND I
  • 00:08:26.100 --> 00:08:30.050
  • THINK I WAS A LITTLE OBLIVIOUS TO WHAT THE NFL
  • 00:08:30.070 --> 00:08:33.030
  • WAS LIKE BECAUSE WE DIDN'T DATE ALL
  • 00:08:33.050 --> 00:08:38.140
  • THROUGHOUT COLLEGE SO I DIDN'T KNOW.
  • 00:08:38.160 --> 00:08:40.130
  • - SO WE STARTED DATING BEFORE SENIOR YEAR AND WE
  • 00:08:40.150 --> 00:08:43.250
  • WENT UNDEFEATED THAT YEAR, SO SHE HAD NEVER
  • 00:08:43.270 --> 00:08:45.280
  • SEEN ME LOSE A GAME, SO--
  • 00:08:46.000 --> 00:08:47.240
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:08:47.260 --> 00:08:50.060
  • SO SHE WAS GREAT.
  • 00:08:50.080 --> 00:08:51.160
  • YOU WIN EVERY GAME THAT YOU PLAY,
  • 00:08:51.180 --> 00:08:53.040
  • SO, BUT THAT'S JUST.
  • 00:08:53.060 --> 00:08:55.050
  • - THEN COLLEGE, YOU'RE STILL KIDS AND
  • 00:08:55.070 --> 00:08:58.130
  • YOU'RE YOUNG AND THEN TRANSITIONING INTO NFL.
  • 00:08:58.150 --> 00:09:01.290
  • I THINK WE WERE A LITTLE BIT NAIVE GOING INTO IT,
  • 00:09:02.010 --> 00:09:04.150
  • NOT REALLY UNDERSTANDING, THEN YOU'RE ADULTS AND
  • 00:09:04.170 --> 00:09:06.230
  • PEOPLE GO TO THESE GAMES AND HAVE THESE
  • 00:09:06.250 --> 00:09:09.110
  • EXPECTATIONS OF YOU AND WHAT YOU SHOULD BE LIKE
  • 00:09:09.130 --> 00:09:11.230
  • AND WHAT YOUR FAMILY SHOULD BE LIKE,
  • 00:09:11.250 --> 00:09:13.210
  • AND IT WAS AN ADJUSTMENT FOR SURE.
  • 00:09:13.230 --> 00:09:16.230
  • - AND HOW HAVE YOU NAVIGATED SOME OF THAT?
  • 00:09:16.250 --> 00:09:19.080
  • BECAUSE YOU GO FROM SORT OF BEING WHEN I SAY
  • 00:09:19.100 --> 00:09:22.060
  • ANONYMOUS LIKE YOU'RE LIVING YOUR LIFE AND
  • 00:09:22.080 --> 00:09:24.070
  • YOU'RE GONNA GET MARRIED, AND THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN
  • 00:09:24.090 --> 00:09:27.120
  • PEOPLE EXPECT YOUR HUSBAND TO BE THE
  • 00:09:27.140 --> 00:09:31.110
  • FOURTH PART OF THE TRINITY BASICALLY.
  • 00:09:31.130 --> 00:09:34.200
  • I'M INTERESTED TO HEAR FROM BOTH YOU GIRLS,
  • 00:09:34.220 --> 00:09:36.160
  • HOW HAVE YOU NAVIGATED SOME OF THAT?
  • 00:09:36.180 --> 00:09:38.240
  • - IT'S DEFINITELY BEEN A JOURNEY.
  • 00:09:38.260 --> 00:09:40.130
  • OUR FIRST YEAR BEING MARRIED AND THEN ENTERING
  • 00:09:40.150 --> 00:09:43.280
  • THE NFL, IT WAS A LOT OF TRANSITION, WHICH ALL NOW
  • 00:09:44.000 --> 00:09:48.060
  • LOOKING BACK IT'S LIKE GOD WAS DOING SOME PRETTY
  • 00:09:48.080 --> 00:09:50.130
  • INCREDIBLE THINGS THROUGH THOSE HARDSHIPS BECAUSE
  • 00:09:50.150 --> 00:09:53.260
  • LIKE YOU SAID, YOU'RE WORKING AND YOU'RE IN
  • 00:09:53.280 --> 00:09:55.290
  • COLLEGE AND YOU HAVE THE SENSE OF OWNERSHIP OF WHO
  • 00:09:56.010 --> 00:09:59.260
  • YOU ARE AND WHAT YOU'RE DOING, AND THEN YOU GET
  • 00:09:59.280 --> 00:10:02.140
  • THROWN INTO THIS WORLD THAT I REALLY DIDN'T KNOW
  • 00:10:02.160 --> 00:10:04.250
  • MUCH ABOUT, AND SO MY IDEAS OF THE NFL WERE
  • 00:10:04.270 --> 00:10:09.290
  • BASED OFF SOCIAL MEDIA AND TV AND WHICH I'M SURE
  • 00:10:10.010 --> 00:10:14.120
  • IT'S VERY SIMILAR FOR A LOT OF Y'ALL, AND SO YOU
  • 00:10:14.140 --> 00:10:17.260
  • KIND OF PUT YOURSELF IN THIS BOX OF I'M NOT GONNA
  • 00:10:17.280 --> 00:10:20.060
  • FIT IN, YOU HAVE MARRIED, I THINK I TOLD HIM FIVE
  • 00:10:20.080 --> 00:10:22.220
  • HUNDRED TIMES HAVE YOU MARRIED THE WRONG
  • 00:10:22.240 --> 00:10:24.170
  • PERSON FOR THIS.
  • 00:10:24.190 --> 00:10:26.160
  • AND IT WAS REALLY HARD BECAUSE I LOST A SENSE OF
  • 00:10:26.180 --> 00:10:28.290
  • WHO I WAS BECAUSE I DIDN'T FEEL LIKE I FIT IN.
  • 00:10:29.010 --> 00:10:31.220
  • AND IT JUST WASN'T THE CASE.
  • 00:10:31.240 --> 00:10:34.040
  • GOD HAD PLACED US ON THAT TEAM AND IN THAT CITY FOR
  • 00:10:34.060 --> 00:10:37.040
  • A PURPOSE, AND I WAS SO STUBBORN AND SCARED TO
  • 00:10:37.060 --> 00:10:41.100
  • REALLY REALIZE WHAT HE WAS PUTTING ME THERE FOR.
  • 00:10:41.120 --> 00:10:45.000
  • YOU KNOW BECAUSE SITUATIONS LIKE THIS AS
  • 00:10:45.020 --> 00:10:47.010
  • CRISTINE KNOWS, THIS IS JUST EXTREMELY OUT OF MY
  • 00:10:47.030 --> 00:10:50.020
  • COMFORT ZONE, AND IT'S NOT SOMETHING YOU CAN
  • 00:10:50.040 --> 00:10:53.080
  • REALLY HIDE WHEN YOUR HUSBAND IS THE
  • 00:10:53.100 --> 00:10:55.180
  • QUARTERBACK OF AN NFL TEAM.
  • 00:10:55.200 --> 00:10:57.220
  • - I THINK ANOTHER THING THAT WAS KIND OF TOUGH WITH
  • 00:10:57.240 --> 00:10:59.220
  • IT WAS TO GET INTO IT, IN 2011 THERE WAS A LOCK-OUT SO
  • 00:10:59.240 --> 00:11:04.030
  • WE DIDN'T KNOW WHEN EXACTLY WE WERE GONNA BE MOVING
  • 00:11:04.050 --> 00:11:06.220
  • TO CINCINNATI, SO IT'S LIKE WE GOT MARRIED AND
  • 00:11:06.240 --> 00:11:09.250
  • THEN TWO WEEKS LATER, WE DIDN'T KNOW WHERE WE WERE
  • 00:11:09.270 --> 00:11:12.280
  • GOING, BUT I GOT A PHONE CALL SAYING ALL RIGHT,
  • 00:11:13.000 --> 00:11:14.200
  • THE LOCK OUT IS OVER, YOU'VE GOT TO BE HERE TOMORROW.
  • 00:11:14.220 --> 00:11:17.210
  • SO THEN WE WERE PLANNING ON DRIVING UP TO
  • 00:11:17.230 --> 00:11:19.190
  • CINCINNATI TO MOVE INTO OUR HOUSE TOGETHER,
  • 00:11:19.210 --> 00:11:21.220
  • IT WAS GONNA BE OUR FIRST HOME.
  • 00:11:21.240 --> 00:11:22.280
  • - SO DREAMY!
  • 00:11:23.000 --> 00:11:24.180
  • - YEAH, YOU MOVE TO A NEW CITY, NO FAMILY,
  • 00:11:24.200 --> 00:11:28.220
  • YOU'VE GOT ALL THAT KIND OF STUFF, AND I THINK
  • 00:11:28.240 --> 00:11:30.100
  • THAT'S ANOTHER THING THAT WAS TOUGH WAS LIKE,
  • 00:11:30.120 --> 00:11:33.000
  • SHE'S GOING THERE FOR ME, IT WASN'T BECAUSE WE
  • 00:11:33.020 --> 00:11:35.210
  • WEREN'T MOVING TO CINCINNATI BECAUSE OF,
  • 00:11:35.230 --> 00:11:37.220
  • WELL THAT'S WHAT WE DECIDED.
  • 00:11:37.240 --> 00:11:39.080
  • IT WAS BECAUSE I GOT DRAFTED THERE AND THAT'S
  • 00:11:39.100 --> 00:11:41.040
  • THE TEAM AND THE CITY YOU'RE GOING TO.
  • 00:11:41.060 --> 00:11:44.020
  • SO I THINK TRYING TO FIND WHERE YOU FIT IN AND ALL
  • 00:11:44.040 --> 00:11:48.050
  • THAT, I THINK THAT WAS SOMETHING THAT YOU HAVE
  • 00:11:48.070 --> 00:11:51.210
  • REALLY WORKED THROUGH.
  • 00:11:51.230 --> 00:11:53.260
  • - LOOKING BACK, IT'S LIKE GOD HAS PROVIDED SO
  • 00:11:53.280 --> 00:11:56.000
  • MANY OUTLETS THAT I WAS SO SCARED TO LET MYSELF
  • 00:11:56.020 --> 00:11:58.260
  • GO INTO BECAUSE I FELT LIKE I FIT IN THIS BOX OF
  • 00:11:58.280 --> 00:12:01.210
  • I'M NOT THIS AND I'M NOT THIS, WHEN GOD IS TELLING
  • 00:12:01.230 --> 00:12:04.110
  • ME THIS IS WHAT YOU ARE AND YOU THINK YOU'RE
  • 00:12:04.130 --> 00:12:07.030
  • THIS, THAT'S THE DEVIL YOU TELLING YOU WHAT
  • 00:12:07.050 --> 00:12:08.270
  • YOU'RE NOT BUT I'M TELLING YOU WHAT YOU ARE.
  • 00:12:08.290 --> 00:12:11.070
  • AND I FEEL LIKE ONCE I REALLY STARTED TO
  • 00:12:11.090 --> 00:12:12.190
  • UNDERSTAND THAT, IT'S BEEN REALLY COOL TO SEE
  • 00:12:12.210 --> 00:12:14.130
  • JUST WHAT ALL HE'S DONE THROUGH HIS PLATFORM AND
  • 00:12:14.150 --> 00:12:17.180
  • OUR PLATFORM AND ME AS AN INDIVIDUAL AND AS A WIFE
  • 00:12:17.200 --> 00:12:20.270
  • AND A MOM, AND IT'S JUST BEEN A CRAZY JOURNEY.
  • 00:12:20.290 --> 00:12:23.250
  • - COME ON, I LOVE THAT.
  • 00:12:23.270 --> 00:12:25.100
  • WE'RE GONNA LAND BACK THERE BECAUSE I'VE SEEN
  • 00:12:25.120 --> 00:12:27.080
  • SOME OF THAT JOURNEY AND IT'S BEEN REALLY EXCITING.
  • 00:12:27.100 --> 00:12:29.060
  • BUT HOW ABOUT FOR YOU, DANIELLE? HOW DID IT WORK
  • 00:12:29.080 --> 00:12:31.050
  • FOR YOU GUYS?
  • 00:12:31.070 --> 00:12:32.160
  • HOW DID YOU KNOW WHERE YOU WERE GOING TO PLAY?
  • 00:12:32.180 --> 00:12:34.210
  • BECAUSE THERE'S UNCERTAINTY WITH THE NFL.
  • 00:12:34.230 --> 00:12:36.170
  • YOU DON'T REALLY KNOW.
  • 00:12:36.190 --> 00:12:37.270
  • - YEAH, SO YOU GOT DRAFTED.
  • 00:12:37.290 --> 00:12:40.240
  • - SO I GOT DRAFTED TO CINCINNATI, AND WE WERE
  • 00:12:40.260 --> 00:12:45.130
  • STILL DATING AT THE TIME, AND SHE WAS IN TEXAS WORKING.
  • 00:12:45.150 --> 00:12:50.290
  • AND THEN SO THE WHOLE FIRST SEASON, I WAS IN
  • 00:12:51.010 --> 00:12:54.120
  • CINCINNATI, AND SHE WAS STILL BACK IN TEXAS.
  • 00:12:54.140 --> 00:12:57.220
  • BUT WE GOT ENGAGED AND WE WERE PLANNING THE
  • 00:12:57.240 --> 00:12:59.140
  • WEDDING, AND SO AFTER THE SEASON WE ENDED UP
  • 00:12:59.160 --> 00:13:02.130
  • GETTING MARRIED, BUT AT THE SAME TIME, WE DID
  • 00:13:02.150 --> 00:13:05.030
  • LONG DISTANCE THROUGHOUT COLLEGE AS WELL, SO SHE
  • 00:13:05.050 --> 00:13:07.090
  • WENT TO TEXAS A&M, I WAS IN NEBRASKA SO THAT WAS
  • 00:13:07.110 --> 00:13:09.230
  • DEFINITELY TOUGH BUT SOMETHING WE GREW FROM.
  • 00:13:09.250 --> 00:13:13.210
  • SO WE DID THAT THROUGH THE FIRST YEAR OF THE NFL
  • 00:13:13.230 --> 00:13:17.160
  • BUT ENDED UP GETTING MARRIED AND GOT TO LIVE
  • 00:13:17.180 --> 00:13:19.140
  • WITH EACH OTHER AFTER THAT.
  • 00:13:19.160 --> 00:13:20.230
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:13:20.250 --> 00:13:22.020
  • - I HOPE YOU GOT THAT ORDER.
  • 00:13:22.040 --> 00:13:25.010
  • SO HOW WAS THAT FOR YOU BECAUSE OBVIOUSLY YOU KNEW
  • 00:13:25.030 --> 00:13:27.210
  • YOU WERE GONNA A MARRY A PROFESSIONAL ATHLETE AS WELL.
  • 00:13:27.230 --> 00:13:29.240
  • - YEAH, IT WAS I THINK FOR US IT WAS A LITTLE
  • 00:13:29.260 --> 00:13:33.080
  • BIT, FOR ME AT LEAST, IT WAS A LITTLE MORE
  • 00:13:33.100 --> 00:13:34.270
  • DIFFICULT IN COLLEGE BECAUSE HE HAD A HEAVIER
  • 00:13:34.290 --> 00:13:38.190
  • ROLE IN COLLEGE, AND HIS IMAGE WAS REALLY RAISED
  • 00:13:38.210 --> 00:13:42.100
  • UP, AND EVERY TIME I WOULD COME TO VISIT, I
  • 00:13:42.120 --> 00:13:44.230
  • FELT LIKE EVERYBODY, KIND OF LIKE JJ SAID,
  • 00:13:44.250 --> 00:13:47.020
  • EVERYBODY'S LOOKING AT YOU AND SAME IN THE NFL.
  • 00:13:47.040 --> 00:13:50.010
  • BUT I FEEL LIKE I HAD A LITTLE BIT EASIER THAN
  • 00:13:50.030 --> 00:13:52.040
  • JJ BECAUSE SHE WAS ALREADY THERE, AND I HAD
  • 00:13:52.060 --> 00:13:56.110
  • HEARD ABOUT ANDY AND JJ, AND I KNEW THEY
  • 00:13:56.130 --> 00:13:59.120
  • WERE CHRISTIANS BECAUSE THEY DID SUCH A GREAT JOB
  • 00:13:59.140 --> 00:14:02.030
  • OF SHARING THEIR FAITH WITH TEAMMATES AND WITH
  • 00:14:02.050 --> 00:14:05.000
  • THOSE AROUND THEM, AND SO I WAS SO BLESSED AND
  • 00:14:05.020 --> 00:14:07.040
  • FORTUNATE TO BE ABLE TO KNOW THAT THERE WAS A
  • 00:14:07.060 --> 00:14:09.120
  • COMMUNITY COMING IN,
  • 00:14:09.140 --> 00:14:10.270
  • SO I SAW HER ON INSTAGRAM ONE DAY.
  • 00:14:10.290 --> 00:14:15.120
  • - SO MANY FRIENDSHIPS HAVE STARTED ON INSTAGRAM!
  • 00:14:15.140 --> 00:14:18.140
  • - YEAH, WE GOT DRAFTED I WAS LIKE OH, NO!
  • 00:14:18.160 --> 00:14:21.180
  • I'M GONNA BE MOVING THERE, I DON'T KNOW
  • 00:14:21.200 --> 00:14:22.290
  • ANYBODY, AND SO THAT'S HARD.
  • 00:14:23.010 --> 00:14:26.210
  • THAT'S A HARD PILL TO SWALLOW WHEN YOU DON'T,
  • 00:14:26.230 --> 00:14:28.100
  • YOU REALLY WANT FRIENDS.
  • 00:14:28.120 --> 00:14:30.060
  • FRIENDS ARE IMPORTANT, COMMUNITY IS SO IMPORTANT
  • 00:14:30.080 --> 00:14:33.070
  • FOR YOUR GROWTH AND JUST FOR BEING ABLE TO HAVE
  • 00:14:33.090 --> 00:14:36.120
  • RELATIONSHIP WITH OTHERS, AND SO I SAW HER ON
  • 00:14:36.140 --> 00:14:39.170
  • INSTAGRAM AND SHE'S THIS GREAT SMILE AND LOOKS SO
  • 00:14:39.190 --> 00:14:42.280
  • FRIENDLY AND SHE IS, AND I WAS LIKE OH, GREAT THIS
  • 00:14:43.000 --> 00:14:49.020
  • IS AWESOME, THERE'S GONNA BE ANOTHER CHRISTIAN
  • 00:14:49.040 --> 00:14:51.090
  • THERE, LIKE HOPEFULLY SHE'LL BE MY FRIEND.
  • 00:14:51.110 --> 00:14:54.080
  • - SHE HAS TO BE, SHE'S A CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:14:54.100 --> 00:14:57.040
  • - SO I THINK THAT PART WAS DIFFICULT WANTING TO
  • 00:14:57.060 --> 00:15:00.240
  • HAVE FRIENDS, WANTING TO BE IN COMMUNITY.
  • 00:15:00.260 --> 00:15:05.060
  • I FEEL LIKE THE PRESSURE FOR ME, I'M NOT AS MUCH
  • 00:15:05.080 --> 00:15:08.010
  • IN THE LIMELIGHT AS SHE IS PER SE, BUT JUST THE
  • 00:15:08.030 --> 00:15:10.200
  • WANT FOR RELATIONSHIP AND THE DESIRE TO BE KNOWN,
  • 00:15:10.220 --> 00:15:16.080
  • AND THE EXPECTATION AS WELL TO ALWAYS KIND OF
  • 00:15:16.100 --> 00:15:21.260
  • BE ON AND BE WHO OTHERS THINK YOU SHOULD BE.
  • 00:15:21.280 --> 00:15:26.180
  • - HOW DO YOU NAVIGATE THAT?
  • 00:15:26.200 --> 00:15:29.030
  • HOW DO YOU STAY GROUNDED IN WHO GOD HAS MADE YOU
  • 00:15:29.050 --> 00:15:31.050
  • TO BE AND LIVING UP TO THE EXPECTATIONS OF WHO
  • 00:15:31.070 --> 00:15:33.240
  • PEOPLE WANT YOU TO BE?
  • 00:15:33.260 --> 00:15:35.070
  • - YEAH THAT'S GOOD.
  • 00:15:35.090 --> 00:15:36.250
  • FOR ME, I THINK IT'S JUST A CONSTANT PRAYER WITH
  • 00:15:36.270 --> 00:15:43.200
  • THE LORD, AND A CONSTANT AGAIN RELATIONSHIP,
  • 00:15:43.220 --> 00:15:48.290
  • ACCOUNTABILITY WITH OTHERS IN THAT ALLOWING
  • 00:15:49.010 --> 00:15:54.200
  • HIM TO POUR INTO YOU AND TELL YOU AND INVITE THE
  • 00:15:54.220 --> 00:15:59.000
  • HOLY SPIRIT IN AND JUST HAVE HIM MINISTER TO YOU
  • 00:15:59.020 --> 00:16:03.220
  • IN THOSE MOMENTS OF SELF DOUBT AND INSECURITY.
  • 00:16:03.240 --> 00:16:06.190
  • AND WHEN YOU'RE IN A GROUP OF PEOPLE AND
  • 00:16:06.210 --> 00:16:09.070
  • THERE'S ALL THESE WONDERFUL WOMEN WHO LOOK LIKE
  • 00:16:09.090 --> 00:16:11.110
  • THEY ALL HAVE IT TOGETHER, AND YOU'RE JUST
  • 00:16:11.130 --> 00:16:13.040
  • KIND OF IN YOUR INSECURE SPOT AND DON'T FEEL LIKE
  • 00:16:13.060 --> 00:16:16.060
  • YOU REALLY BELONG THERE, I FEEL LIKE FOR ME IF
  • 00:16:16.080 --> 00:16:20.180
  • I CAN JUST PRAY IN THAT MOMENT AND INVITE THE
  • 00:16:20.200 --> 00:16:23.060
  • HOLY SPIRIT INTO THAT MOMENT AND JUST MAKE ME
  • 00:16:23.080 --> 00:16:26.210
  • CONFIDENT IN WHO YOU ARE AND HELP ME TO GLORIFY
  • 00:16:26.230 --> 00:16:28.170
  • YOU IN THOSE MOMENTS AND HELP ME TO BE KIND AND
  • 00:16:28.190 --> 00:16:31.270
  • GENTLE AND PATIENT WITH OTHERS AND NOT HARSH IN
  • 00:16:31.290 --> 00:16:36.230
  • ANY WAY AND JUST LOVING.
  • 00:16:36.250 --> 00:16:38.210
  • SO THAT'S I THINK THAT'S THE BIGGEST THING FOR ME
  • 00:16:38.230 --> 00:16:41.010
  • IS JUST PRAYER THROUGH THOSE MOMENTS
  • 00:16:41.030 --> 00:16:42.170
  • THAT ARE DIFFICULT.
  • 00:16:42.190 --> 00:16:43.260
  • - I THINK THAT'S POWERFUL.
  • 00:16:43.280 --> 00:16:45.110
  • GREAT WISDOM RIGHT THERE, THAT'S FOR SURE.
  • 00:16:45.130 --> 00:16:47.040
  • ABSOLUTELY!
  • 00:16:47.060 --> 00:16:49.010
  • AND I WAS THINKING I KNOW JJ I'VE BEEN, I'VE
  • 00:16:49.030 --> 00:16:52.040
  • HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO COME AND WATCH YOU GUYS
  • 00:16:52.060 --> 00:16:54.180
  • WIN, ACTUALLY, WIN WHICH IS AWESOME, AND CERTAINLY
  • 00:16:54.200 --> 00:16:58.270
  • SOMETIMES I WALK INTO THOSE ENVIRONMENTS AND A
  • 00:16:58.290 --> 00:17:01.190
  • LOT OF THE GIRLS DO LOOK LIKE THEY HAVE II ALL
  • 00:17:01.210 --> 00:17:04.190
  • TOGETHER, AND VERY STUNNING IN LOTS OF WAYS,
  • 00:17:04.210 --> 00:17:07.230
  • AND BECAUSE I'M SHORT I OFTEN STICK OUT A LOT
  • 00:17:07.250 --> 00:17:11.050
  • THAT I AM NOT AS TALL AS SOME OF THOSE BEAUTIFUL--
  • 00:17:11.070 --> 00:17:14.180
  • AND YOU CAN WALK IN AND EASILY BE INTIMIDATED
  • 00:17:14.200 --> 00:17:17.020
  • OR OVERWHELMED.
  • 00:17:17.040 --> 00:17:19.080
  • HOW DO YOU KIND OF MAINTAIN THIS ASSIGNMENT,
  • 00:17:19.100 --> 00:17:22.220
  • I DIDN'T ASK TO BE SENT HERE, GOD SENT ME HERE
  • 00:17:22.240 --> 00:17:25.070
  • BUT I'VE SEEN A LOT OF THOSE GIRLS OPEN UP TO
  • 00:17:25.090 --> 00:17:27.040
  • YOU AND SHARE WITH YOU.
  • 00:17:27.060 --> 00:17:28.290
  • SO I THINK SOME OF WHAT I'VE DISCOVERED STEPPING
  • 00:17:29.010 --> 00:17:31.100
  • INTO YOUR WORLD A BIT IS PEOPLE HAVE THE SAME
  • 00:17:31.120 --> 00:17:33.140
  • PROBLEMS EVERYWHERE.
  • 00:17:33.160 --> 00:17:34.210
  • IS THAT WHAT YOU HAVE FOUND?
  • 00:17:34.230 --> 00:17:36.060
  • - TOTALLY. IT'S BEEN REAL FUN THIS PAST YEAR.
  • 00:17:36.080 --> 00:17:39.010
  • ANDY AND I HAVE JUST SEEN HOW OUR ROLE ON THE TEAM
  • 00:17:39.030 --> 00:17:42.080
  • IS TRANSITIONING BECAUSE YOU ALWAYS THINK OF
  • 00:17:42.100 --> 00:17:43.240
  • YOURSELF AS THE YOUNG ONE, AND SOMEONE SAID TO
  • 00:17:43.260 --> 00:17:47.040
  • US, Y'ALL AREN'T THE ROOKIES ANYMORE.
  • 00:17:47.060 --> 00:17:49.080
  • AND SO THROUGH OUR BIBLE STUDY, WE HAVE A WOMEN'S
  • 00:17:49.100 --> 00:17:51.140
  • STUDY AND A COUPLE'S STUDY, IT'S REALLY
  • 00:17:51.160 --> 00:17:53.140
  • ENCOURAGING TO SEE THE NEW COUPLES COME IN AND
  • 00:17:53.160 --> 00:17:56.060
  • THEY JUST, THEY'RE GOING THROUGH THE SAME THING.
  • 00:17:56.080 --> 00:17:58.180
  • YOU REALIZE IT'S NOT NECESSARILY AN NFL THING
  • 00:17:58.200 --> 00:18:00.280
  • OR A JOB, IT'S JUST A WORLD THING AND A SIN THING.
  • 00:18:01.000 --> 00:18:04.210
  • AND REALLY UNDERSTANDING WHAT AN HONOR IT WAS TO
  • 00:18:04.230 --> 00:18:09.210
  • GO THROUGH THOSE STRUGGLES TO SEE HOW THE
  • 00:18:09.230 --> 00:18:11.250
  • LORD WORKED THROUGH US AND CREATED THIS
  • 00:18:11.270 --> 00:18:15.190
  • CONFIDENCE IN WHAT WE'RE DOING, AND THAT WE WERE
  • 00:18:15.210 --> 00:18:18.210
  • THERE FOR A PURPOSE.
  • 00:18:18.230 --> 00:18:20.150
  • I CAN TRULY SPEAK INTO THOSE WOMEN AND THOSE
  • 00:18:20.170 --> 00:18:22.230
  • COUPLES AND SAY YOU ARE HERE FOR A REASON AND
  • 00:18:22.250 --> 00:18:26.140
  • DON'T EVER DOUBT THAT BECAUSE IT'S NOT BY
  • 00:18:26.160 --> 00:18:28.170
  • ACCIDENT THAT YOU WERE DRAFTED HERE, THAT Y'ALL
  • 00:18:28.190 --> 00:18:30.150
  • WERE MARRIED BECAUSE IT'S REALLY EASY LIKE DANIELLE
  • 00:18:30.170 --> 00:18:32.240
  • SAID TO GET LOST IN THE MOMENT AND FEEL LIKE
  • 00:18:32.260 --> 00:18:35.120
  • YOU'RE NOT AS IMPORTANT OR PEOPLE DON'T SEE YOU
  • 00:18:35.140 --> 00:18:37.150
  • OR THEY DON'T WANT TO SEE YOU, BUT GOD SEES YOU.
  • 00:18:37.170 --> 00:18:40.270
  • AND I FEEL LIKE ONCE YOU UNDERSTAND THAT AND LIKE
  • 00:18:40.290 --> 00:18:44.280
  • DANIELLE SAID, IT'S SO EASY TO GET LOST AND FEEL SELF
  • 00:18:45.000 --> 00:18:50.060
  • DOUBT AND INSECURE, BUT GOD IS THERE SAYING YOU
  • 00:18:50.080 --> 00:18:54.000
  • ARE MY DAUGHTER, YOU ARE HERE AND I LOVE YOU.
  • 00:18:54.020 --> 00:18:56.090
  • AND SO JUST REMEMBERING THAT AND ASKING THE HOLY
  • 00:18:56.110 --> 00:18:59.090
  • SPIRIT TO JUST COME FILL YOU WITH THAT CONFIDENCE
  • 00:18:59.110 --> 00:19:01.070
  • THAT YOU NEED AND NOT LET THE DEVIL CREEP IN AND
  • 00:19:01.090 --> 00:19:03.170
  • TELL YOU THOSE THINGS, IT'S BEEN SUCH A, IT WAS
  • 00:19:03.190 --> 00:19:05.280
  • A PAINFUL, TOUGH COUPLE OF YEARS, BUT SO
  • 00:19:06.000 --> 00:19:09.120
  • REWARDING TO BE ABLE TO MAYBE SPEAK LIFE INTO
  • 00:19:09.140 --> 00:19:11.260
  • THOSE PEOPLE GOING THROUGH THE SAME THING.
  • 00:19:11.280 --> 00:19:14.230
  • - YEAH, LIKE SHE SAID EARLIER, WHEN SHE SAID
  • 00:19:14.250 --> 00:19:17.070

  • 00:19:17.090 --> 00:19:19.290
  • LIKE I DIDN'T MARRY THEM, I MARRIED YOU.
  • 00:19:20.010 --> 00:19:21.190
  • - COME ON!
  • 00:19:21.210 --> 00:19:23.040
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:19:23.060 --> 00:19:25.170

  • 00:19:25.190 --> 00:19:27.030
  • INSTILL CONFIDENCE IN HER BECAUSE I WAS WASN'T

  • I WAS LOOKING FOR YOU.
  • 00:19:32.080 --> 00:19:33.210
  • - THIS IS GREAT.
  • 00:19:33.230 --> 00:19:36.120

  • IT'S LIKE OKAY LIKE SHE WAS SAYING IT'S
  • 00:19:52.020 --> 00:19:54.030
  • NOT NEW FOR US ANYMORE.
  • 00:19:54.050 --> 00:19:55.240
  • WE'VE GONE THROUGH THE EXACT SAME THING THAT
  • 00:19:55.260 --> 00:19:57.230
  • YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT, SO YOU CAN HAVE THOSE
  • 00:19:57.250 --> 00:20:00.100
  • EXPERIENCES TO KIND OF TALK THEM ABOUT AND HOW

  • - THROUGH PRAYER.
  • 00:20:16.180 --> 00:20:18.140
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:20:18.160 --> 00:20:20.050
  • THROUGH PRAYER.
  • 00:20:20.070 --> 00:20:21.230
  • HER HOLDING ME ACCOUNTABLE.
  • 00:20:21.250 --> 00:20:24.080
  • - NOTHING LIKE A WIFE.
  • 00:20:24.100 --> 00:20:25.220
  • - IF I START SAYING SOME THINGS,
  • 00:20:25.240 --> 00:20:26.290
  • SHE BRINGS ME DOWN TO EARTH FOR SURE.
  • 00:20:27.010 --> 00:20:29.000
  • SO YEAH, JUST REALLY A LOT OF PRAYER.
  • 00:20:29.020 --> 00:20:32.080

  • GROWING IN YOUR FAITH AND AS WELL AS OTHER PLAYERS
  • 00:20:40.190 --> 00:20:43.140
  • IN THE LOCKER ROOM.
  • 00:20:43.160 --> 00:20:45.060
  • GUYS ARE ALWAYS HOLDING EACH OTHER ACCOUNTABLE,
  • 00:20:45.080 --> 00:20:47.160
  • IF YOU SAY SOMETHING LIKE NOPE, NOT GONNA LET YOU
  • 00:20:47.180 --> 00:20:50.000
  • GET THAT HIGH ON YOURSELF.
  • 00:20:50.020 --> 00:20:52.050
  • SO YEAH, JUST HAVING HER AND KEEPING IN THE PRAYER
  • 00:20:52.070 --> 00:20:56.220
  • AND IN YOUR FAITH.
  • 00:20:56.240 --> 00:20:58.120
  • - I THINK ONE THING THAT YOU HAVE TO REALIZE IS
  • 00:20:58.140 --> 00:21:01.260
  • GOD HAS GIVEN ME THIS TALENT.
  • 00:21:01.280 --> 00:21:04.040
  • I'VE OBVIOUSLY WORKED HARD TO GET TO WHERE I'M
  • 00:21:04.060 --> 00:21:06.260
  • AT, BUT THERE'S OTHER PEOPLE THAT CAN'T THROW A
  • 00:21:06.280 --> 00:21:10.020
  • FOOTBALL, SO IT'S LIKE I'VE BEEN FORTUNATE THAT HE
  • 00:21:10.040 --> 00:21:12.140
  • GAVE ME THAT ABILITY, SO IT'S NOTHING THAT I'VE DONE
  • 00:21:12.160 --> 00:21:16.230
  • ON MY OWN. I REALIZE THAT AND YOU HAVE TO KEEP
  • 00:21:16.250 --> 00:21:20.000
  • REMINDING YOURSELF THAT. IF YOU HAVE A BAD GAME,
  • 00:21:20.020 --> 00:21:23.070
  • A LOT OF PEOPLE REMIND YOU THAT.
  • 00:21:23.090 --> 00:21:25.260
  • - I WONDER IF YOU HAVE, HAVE YOU EVER HAD A BAD GAME?
  • 00:21:25.280 --> 00:21:30.130
  • - NO!
  • 00:21:30.150 --> 00:21:32.010
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:21:32.030 --> 00:21:34.060
  • - YEAH. IMMEDIATELY DELETE TWITTER, IMMEDIATELY
  • 00:21:34.080 --> 00:21:36.290
  • DELETE INSTAGRAM, ANYTHING WHERE YOU CAN
  • 00:21:37.010 --> 00:21:39.270
  • READ ANYTHING NEGATIVE ABOUT YOU.
  • 00:21:39.290 --> 00:21:42.120
  • BUT YEAH I THINK IT'S JUST REALIZING THAT THE
  • 00:21:42.140 --> 00:21:45.150
  • TALENTS THAT YOU HAVE ISN'T BECAUSE OF WHAT
  • 00:21:45.170 --> 00:21:47.220
  • YOU'VE DONE, IT'S BECAUSE OF WHAT GOD HAS GIVEN YOU.
  • 00:21:47.240 --> 00:21:50.010
  • - WHAT ALSO ASTOUNDS ME JUST KNOWING YOU, THE
  • 00:21:50.030 --> 00:21:52.220
  • LITTLE BIT THAT I DO, HOW HAVE YOU GUYS KEPT
  • 00:21:52.240 --> 00:21:56.090
  • YOURSELF AND YOUR MARRIAGE A PRIORITY
  • 00:21:56.110 --> 00:21:58.210
  • BECAUSE SOME OF THAT WORLD IS NOT ALWAYS THE
  • 00:21:58.230 --> 00:22:01.160
  • MOST GODLY, PRINCIPLED, MORAL LIFE. I'M TRYING TO
  • 00:22:01.180 --> 00:22:05.120
  • BE REALLY NICE. SORRY.
  • 00:22:05.140 --> 00:22:08.090
  • SO AND YOU KNOW YOU'RE IN A REAL WORLD AND SO I
  • 00:22:08.110 --> 00:22:12.000
  • WONDER WHAT CHECKS AND BALANCES DO YOU HAVE
  • 00:22:12.020 --> 00:22:14.120
  • YOURSELVES. I THINK YOU MENTIONED A BIBLE STUDY
  • 00:22:14.140 --> 00:22:16.180
  • EVEN IN THE TEAM.
  • 00:22:16.200 --> 00:22:18.080
  • - YEAH, COMMUNITY, THE COUPLE'S STUDY,
  • 00:22:18.100 --> 00:22:20.160
  • IT'S BEEN HUGE.
  • 00:22:20.180 --> 00:22:22.160
  • I KNOW ESPECIALLY FOR US AS WELL, WE'LL COME FROM
  • 00:22:22.180 --> 00:22:24.210
  • A COUPLE'S STUDY AND ON THE WAY, ON THE DRIVE
  • 00:22:24.230 --> 00:22:26.290
  • HOME OR TO HOME, SORRY, WE'LL BE DISCUSSING
  • 00:22:27.010 --> 00:22:31.240
  • EVERYTHING THAT WE LEARNED FROM THAT COUPLE'S STUDY
  • 00:22:31.260 --> 00:22:34.070
  • AND THINGS WE NEED TO IMPROVE UPON AND GROW
  • 00:22:34.090 --> 00:22:36.010
  • FROM, AND THAT'S BEEN HUGE FOR US.
  • 00:22:36.030 --> 00:22:38.200
  • - YEAH, ONE OF THE THINGS THAT I THINK STUCK
  • 00:22:38.220 --> 00:22:40.230
  • WITH ME FROM ONE OF THE STUDIES WAS WHAT'S YOUR
  • 00:22:40.250 --> 00:22:43.140
  • VISION FOR YOUR MARRIAGE?
  • 00:22:43.160 --> 00:22:45.030
  • IT WAS SUCH A GREAT QUESTION.
  • 00:22:45.050 --> 00:22:46.210
  • AND WE HAD BOTH NEVER DISCUSSED IT BEFORE.
  • 00:22:46.230 --> 00:22:50.000
  • AND IT WAS JUST SUCH A GREAT THING TO CONSIDER
  • 00:22:50.020 --> 00:22:55.020
  • YOUR VISION FOR YOUR MARRIAGE AND HOW
  • 00:22:55.040 --> 00:22:56.150
  • DO YOU GET THERE.
  • 00:22:56.170 --> 00:22:59.010
  • WE OBVIOUSLY WANT TO IMPACT LIVES FOR CHRIST,
  • 00:22:59.030 --> 00:23:01.130
  • AND WE OBVIOUSLY WANT TO LOVE OTHERS WELL AND SHOW
  • 00:23:01.150 --> 00:23:05.060
  • FORGIVENESS AND FAITH, BUT IT'S HOW DO YOU DO
  • 00:23:05.080 --> 00:23:07.290
  • THAT ON A DAY-TO-DAY BASIS, AND A BIG PART OF
  • 00:23:08.010 --> 00:23:10.040
  • IT IS BETWEEN US AND BEING FORGIVING AND
  • 00:23:10.060 --> 00:23:12.270
  • LOVING EACH OTHER WELL BEFORE YOU CAN PRACTICE
  • 00:23:12.290 --> 00:23:17.040
  • THAT WITH OTHER PEOPLE EFFECTIVELY.
  • 00:23:17.060 --> 00:23:20.280
  • - USING OUR PLATFORM AS A COUPLE IN THE NFL.
  • 00:23:21.000 --> 00:23:24.050
  • AND I PLAY FOOTBALL BUT IT'S NOT WHO I AM, AND SO
  • 00:23:24.070 --> 00:23:27.110
  • JUST USING OUR PLATFORM TO SHOW OTHERS OKAY THIS
  • 00:23:27.130 --> 00:23:30.220
  • IS THE LIFE YOU SEE ON SOCIAL MEDIA, THIS IS
  • 00:23:30.240 --> 00:23:32.170
  • WHAT YOU SEE ON TV, BUT REALLY THAT'S NOT WHAT IT
  • 00:23:32.190 --> 00:23:35.250
  • IS. SO JUST SHOWING A CHRIST- LIKE EXAMPLE FOR OTHER
  • 00:23:35.270 --> 00:23:39.080
  • PEOPLE AND HOW WE LIVE OUR LIVES, THAT'S WHAT
  • 00:23:39.100 --> 00:23:41.050
  • WE STRIVE TO DO.
  • 00:23:41.070 --> 00:23:42.200
  • - WHICH IS POWERFUL.
  • 00:23:42.220 --> 00:23:43.290
  • IS THERE A HUGE TOLL ON MARRIAGES IN FOOTBALL?
  • 00:23:44.010 --> 00:23:49.010
  • - UM, I THINK ONE THING IS TIME, ESPECIALLY
  • 00:23:49.030 --> 00:23:52.070
  • DURING THE SEASON.
  • 00:23:52.090 --> 00:23:55.110
  • OFF SEASON IS KIND OF NICE BECAUSE WE ARE ABLE
  • 00:23:55.130 --> 00:23:58.060
  • TO SPEND A LOT MORE TIME TOGETHER THAN DURING THE
  • 00:23:58.080 --> 00:24:00.080
  • SEASON. BUT YOU WORK EVERY DAY OF THE WEEK.
  • 00:24:00.100 --> 00:24:04.280
  • THERE'S NO REALLY OFF DAY, SO I THINK THAT'S BIG.
  • 00:24:05.000 --> 00:24:09.130
  • AND WHEN YOU GET HOME, IT'S MAKING SURE-ONE
  • 00:24:09.150 --> 00:24:13.020
  • THING I WANT TO MAKE SURE I'M SPENDING QUALITY TIME
  • 00:24:13.040 --> 00:24:16.070
  • LIKE RIGHT WHEN I'M ABLE TO GET HOME BECAUSE
  • 00:24:16.090 --> 00:24:19.060
  • THERE'S NOT A WHOLE LOT OF THAT TIME DURING THE
  • 00:24:19.080 --> 00:24:20.270
  • SEASON. SO I THINK THAT'S A BIG PART OF IT.
  • 00:24:20.290 --> 00:24:24.090
  • BUT YEAH, I THINK THAT'S A BIG KEY.
  • 00:24:24.110 --> 00:24:28.250
  • - AND TELL ME WITH ANOTHER BABY COMING, HOW
  • 00:24:28.270 --> 00:24:31.010
  • YOU FEELING ABOUT THAT?
  • 00:24:31.030 --> 00:24:33.210
  • - EXCITED.
  • 00:24:33.230 --> 00:24:34.290
  • - WHICH IS AWESOME.
  • 00:24:35.010 --> 00:24:36.010
  • - READY.
  • 00:24:36.030 --> 00:24:37.140
  • - HAS MOTHERING CHANGED THINGS FOR YOU?
  • 00:24:37.160 --> 00:24:39.010
  • - OH, A HUNDRED PERCENT.
  • 00:24:39.030 --> 00:24:41.070
  • YOU JUST-I FEEL LIKE IT'S EASIER FOR ME TO SAY
  • 00:24:41.090 --> 00:24:44.210
  • BECAUSE I'M NOT THE ONE ON THE FIELD AND WHO IS
  • 00:24:44.230 --> 00:24:47.070
  • UNDER ALL THE PRESSURE, BUT.
  • 00:24:47.090 --> 00:24:49.200
  • - NO PRESSURE.
  • 00:24:49.220 --> 00:24:50.270
  • - NO PRESSURE.
  • 00:24:50.290 --> 00:24:52.170
  • BUT SEEING NOAH WITH NASH ON THE WAY, IT PUTS
  • 00:24:52.190 --> 00:24:57.230
  • THINGS IN PERSPECTIVE AND YOU THINK MORE LONG TERM,
  • 00:24:57.250 --> 00:25:01.140
  • LIKE HOW CAN OUR RELATIONSHIP AND OUR
  • 00:25:01.160 --> 00:25:03.280
  • MARRIAGE IMPACT THEM BECAUSE I FEEL LIKE WE'VE
  • 00:25:04.000 --> 00:25:07.020
  • HEARD SO MANY SERMONS AND MESSAGES AND STUDIES
  • 00:25:07.040 --> 00:25:10.080
  • SAYING ONE OF THE BEST GIFTS YOU CAN GIVE YOUR
  • 00:25:10.100 --> 00:25:12.180
  • CHILDREN IS A GOOD MARRIAGE.
  • 00:25:12.200 --> 00:25:14.230
  • AND SO NOT LETTING THAT LIFE IMPACT WHO WE ARE AS
  • 00:25:14.250 --> 00:25:19.230
  • PEOPLE LIKE REX SAID.
  • 00:25:19.250 --> 00:25:21.160
  • IT'S WHAT THEY DO, NOT WHO THEY ARE.
  • 00:25:21.180 --> 00:25:24.210
  • AND SO MAKING SURE WE STAY GROUNDED IN OUR
  • 00:25:24.230 --> 00:25:27.030
  • FAITH AND THAT THAT COMES FIRST IN OUR FAMILY AND
  • 00:25:27.050 --> 00:25:30.210
  • THAT OUR KIDS UNDERSTAND THAT BECAUSE ALSO THE
  • 00:25:30.230 --> 00:25:34.220
  • LIFE WE LIVE IS VERY BLESSED.
  • 00:25:34.240 --> 00:25:36.290
  • WE'RE VERY LUCKY.
  • 00:25:37.010 --> 00:25:38.280
  • AND MAKING SURE THEY UNDERSTAND THAT HOW TO
  • 00:25:39.000 --> 00:25:42.210
  • KEEP THEIR VALUES AND THEIR HUMILITY.
  • 00:25:42.230 --> 00:25:44.200
  • I MEAN, OUR SON IS ONLY TWO AND A HALF SO AGAIN
  • 00:25:44.220 --> 00:25:46.240
  • THIS IS ALL LONG-TERM THINKING.
  • 00:25:46.260 --> 00:25:48.120
  • - THAT'S AWESOME THOUGH.
  • 00:25:48.140 --> 00:25:50.150
  • - YOU JUST HAVE TO KEEP IT IN PERSPECTIVE AND
  • 00:25:50.170 --> 00:25:53.030
  • STAY GROUNDED IN YOUR FAITH BECAUSE YOU ARE
  • 00:25:53.050 --> 00:25:56.130
  • SHAPING THE FUTURE GENERATIONS OF THIS WORLD.
  • 00:25:56.150 --> 00:25:59.100
  • - WHICH I THINK IS AWESOME. I LOVE IT.
  • 00:25:59.120 --> 00:26:01.070
  • I LOVE IT BECAUSE KNOWING YOU, NICK AND I WE LOVE YOU
  • 00:26:01.090 --> 00:26:04.100
  • SO DEARLY, I'VE NEVER SENSED ANY SENSE OF ENTITLEMENT
  • 00:26:04.120 --> 00:26:08.280
  • AND IN MANY WAYS YOU REALLY UNDERSTAND BOTH OF
  • 00:26:09.000 --> 00:26:12.200
  • YOU AS COUPLES THAT YOU'RE BLESSED TO BE A
  • 00:26:12.220 --> 00:26:14.120
  • BLESSING, AND I THINK THAT'S REFLECTED THROUGH
  • 00:26:14.140 --> 00:26:16.010
  • THE FOUNDATIONS THAT YOU BOTH STARTED WHICH I WANT
  • 00:26:16.030 --> 00:26:18.020
  • TO TALK A BIT ABOUT BOTH BECAUSE YOUR GIVINGNESS
  • 00:26:18.040 --> 00:26:21.090
  • IS UNBELIEVABLE BECAUSE YOU COULD, THERE'S PEOPLE
  • 00:26:21.110 --> 00:26:24.180
  • THAT HAVE A LOT AND THEY GO ONE OF TWO WAYS, THEY
  • 00:26:24.200 --> 00:26:27.070
  • EITHER HOLD ONTO IT OR UNDERSTAND THAT I'M
  • 00:26:27.090 --> 00:26:29.050
  • BLESSED TO BE A BLESSING.
  • 00:26:29.070 --> 00:26:30.140
  • AND I THINK IT'S REMARKABLE THE GRACE OF
  • 00:26:30.160 --> 00:26:32.250
  • GOD ON YOUR LIVES AND THAT YOU'VE UNDERSTOOD
  • 00:26:32.270 --> 00:26:34.200
  • THAT WE'RE HERE FOR GOOD IN EVERY WAY, WHETHER
  • 00:26:34.220 --> 00:26:36.190
  • IT'S OUR MARRIAGE YOU ARE OUR FAMILY, OUR
  • 00:26:36.210 --> 00:26:38.040
  • RESOURCES, SO YOU HAD A BIG ENCOUNTER.
  • 00:26:38.060 --> 00:26:42.000
  • - I DID. - TELL US ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:26:42.020 --> 00:26:43.270
  • - FROM THE VIDEO EARLIER, A YOUNG BOY,
  • 00:26:43.290 --> 00:26:47.010
  • JACK HOFFMAN, HAD BEEN IN 2011, A YOUNG BOY
  • 00:26:47.030 --> 00:26:50.140
  • FROM ATKINSON, NEBRASKA HAD BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH
  • 00:26:50.160 --> 00:26:53.220
  • AN INOPERABLE BRAIN TUMOR AT THE AGE OF 6, AND
  • 00:26:53.240 --> 00:26:58.160
  • THEY DIDN'T KNOW WHAT WAS GONNA HAPPEN.
  • 00:26:58.180 --> 00:27:00.030
  • HE WAS HAVING A TON OF SEIZURES BEFORE THE OPERATION.
  • 00:27:00.050 --> 00:27:02.180
  • AND SO ONE OF HIS WISHES WAS TO MEET SOME OF THE
  • 00:27:02.200 --> 00:27:06.040
  • PLAYERS AT UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA.
  • 00:27:06.060 --> 00:27:09.000
  • AND SO WE ENDED UP COMING TO THE STADIUM ONE DAY
  • 00:27:09.020 --> 00:27:12.060
  • AND HAD LUNCH WITH HIM AND HIS FAMILY, HAD HIS
  • 00:27:12.080 --> 00:27:14.100
  • TWO YOUNGER SISTERS THERE AS WELL, AND GAVE HIM A
  • 00:27:14.120 --> 00:27:17.180
  • TOUR OF THE STADIUM.
  • 00:27:17.200 --> 00:27:18.270
  • THEY WERE RUNNING AROUND LIKE CRAZY.
  • 00:27:18.290 --> 00:27:20.140
  • AND IT WAS AWESOME.
  • 00:27:20.160 --> 00:27:22.140
  • HE WAS COMING UP SNEAK ATTACK BURPING IN MY EAR,
  • 00:27:22.160 --> 00:27:26.070
  • WHAT CAN I SAY, IT WAS COOL TO SEE AND VERY
  • 00:27:26.090 --> 00:27:28.240
  • INSPIRING FOR ME JUST KNOWING WHAT HE WAS GOING
  • 00:27:28.260 --> 00:27:32.110
  • THROUGH AND THE WAY HE WAS ACTING.
  • 00:27:32.130 --> 00:27:34.010
  • HE WAS JUST LIVING LIFE TO THE FULLEST LIKE
  • 00:27:34.030 --> 00:27:35.260
  • NOTHING WAS GOING ON.
  • 00:27:35.280 --> 00:27:37.190
  • AND SO THAT WAS VERY INSPIRING.
  • 00:27:37.210 --> 00:27:39.060
  • AND WE JUST KEPT IN TOUCH.
  • 00:27:39.080 --> 00:27:40.290
  • I WANTED TO SEE HOW HE WAS DOING THROUGH HIS
  • 00:27:41.010 --> 00:27:43.010
  • FUTURE TREATMENTS AND PROCEDURES.
  • 00:27:43.030 --> 00:27:45.090
  • AND HE ENDED UP COMING TO OUR GAME AGAINST
  • 00:27:45.110 --> 00:27:48.280
  • OHIO STATE THAT YEAR.
  • 00:27:49.000 --> 00:27:50.120
  • COACH AT TIME INVITED HIM TO THE GAME
  • 00:27:50.140 --> 00:27:52.190
  • AND HE WAS UP IN THE SUITES, AND THE TV
  • 00:27:52.210 --> 00:27:56.080
  • ANNOUNCERS ENDED UP DOING A STORY ON HIM.
  • 00:27:56.100 --> 00:27:58.190
  • AND THAT'S KIND OF WHEN TEAM JACK NATION SPREAD
  • 00:27:58.210 --> 00:28:01.240
  • ACROSS THE WHOLE GLOBE.
  • 00:28:01.260 --> 00:28:04.140
  • AND FROM THEN ON, WE KEPT IN TOUCH AND HE ENDED UP
  • 00:28:04.160 --> 00:28:09.250
  • GETTING A CALL OR I'M SORRY, THE COACHES AND
  • 00:28:09.270 --> 00:28:12.250
  • MYSELF ENDED UP TALKING TO EACH OTHER NIGHT
  • 00:28:12.270 --> 00:28:14.200
  • BEFORE SPRING GAME 2013 AND WE'RE LIKE HEY, WHAT
  • 00:28:14.220 --> 00:28:18.070
  • DO YOU THINK ABOUT JACK BRINGING HIM ON FIELD
  • 00:28:18.090 --> 00:28:21.270
  • AND SCORING A TOUCHDOWN DURING THE SPRING GAME.
  • 00:28:21.290 --> 00:28:25.010
  • AND WE'RE LIKE OH, YEAH, I'M SURE HE'LL LOVE THAT.
  • 00:28:25.030 --> 00:28:28.160
  • BEING A YOUNG BOY IN NEBRASKA, SO YEAH.
  • 00:28:28.180 --> 00:28:32.020
  • WE BROUGHT HIM ON THE FIELD, UNBELIEVABLE
  • 00:28:32.040 --> 00:28:34.160
  • MOMENT, NOT A DRY EYE IN THE STADIUM.
  • 00:28:34.180 --> 00:28:37.030
  • AND THAT VIDEO TOOK OFF.
  • 00:28:37.050 --> 00:28:39.220
  • AND ENDED UP HE GOT AN ESPY AWARD FOR IT FOR
  • 00:28:39.240 --> 00:28:43.200
  • MOMENT OF THE YEAR. WHICH WAS SUPER AWESOME.
  • 00:28:43.220 --> 00:28:47.290
  • AND GOT AN INVITE TO THE WHITE HOUSE TO MEET
  • 00:28:48.010 --> 00:28:50.190
  • PRESIDENT OBAMA AT THE TIME, AND HIS FAMILY WAS
  • 00:28:50.210 --> 00:28:53.100
  • GRACIOUS ENOUGH TO INVITE ME ALONG AS WELL.
  • 00:28:53.120 --> 00:28:55.200
  • AND NOW THE FOUNDATION'S RAISED ALMOST CLOSE TO
  • 00:28:55.220 --> 00:28:58.270
  • $5 MILLION DOLLARS FOR PEDIATRIC BRAIN CANCER.
  • 00:28:58.290 --> 00:29:02.020
  • - WHAT IS THE GOAL?
  • 00:29:02.040 --> 00:29:05.230
  • WHAT ARE YOU GUYS TRYING TO DO?
  • 00:29:05.250 --> 00:29:08.020
  • - YEAH, IT'S TO RAISE FUNDING FOR RESEARCH OF
  • 00:29:08.040 --> 00:29:11.220
  • PEDIATRIC BRAIN CANCER.
  • 00:29:11.240 --> 00:29:13.030
  • - IT'S THE LEAST FUNDED.
  • 00:29:13.050 --> 00:29:14.280
  • - YEAH, IT'S THE LEAST FUNDED RARE DISEASE IN THE COUNTRY,
  • 00:29:15.000 --> 00:29:17.270
  • SO IT NEEDS ALL THE FUNDING IT CAN GET.
  • 00:29:17.290 --> 00:29:19.270
  • AND SOME OF THE TREATMENT OPTIONS ARE OVER 30 YEARS OLD
  • 00:29:19.290 --> 00:29:23.020
  • SO THERE NEEDS TO BE A LOT OF ADVANCEMENTS AS FAR AS
  • 00:29:23.040 --> 00:29:28.030
  • TREATMENTS AND OPERATIONS GO.
  • 00:29:28.050 --> 00:29:29.240
  • SO YEAH, IT'S BEEN NEAT TO BE A PART OF,
  • 00:29:29.260 --> 00:29:32.290
  • AND WE'RE STILL FIGHTING.
  • 00:29:33.010 --> 00:29:34.150
  • - SO YOU GUYS, THEN, HAVE BEEN EXPOSED TO A WHOLE NEW WORLD?
  • 00:29:34.170 --> 00:29:36.070
  • HAVE YOU MET OTHER CHILDREN?
  • 00:29:36.090 --> 00:29:38.190
  • - YEAH, A LOT OF THE CHILDREN COME TO THE TEAM JACK GALA,
  • 00:29:38.210 --> 00:29:43.030

  • 00:29:43.050 --> 00:29:44.240
  • THE FOURTH ONE, RIGHT?
  • 00:29:44.260 --> 00:29:46.190
  • - YEAH, FOURTH ONE.
  • 00:29:46.210 --> 00:29:48.040
  • - AND WE'VE MET SO MANY KIDS WHO ARE AFFECTED BY THIS, AND
  • 00:29:48.060 --> 00:29:52.150
  • ONE OF THE GIRLS, GIGI, SHE WAS THERE TWO YEARS AGO, AND
  • 00:29:52.170 --> 00:29:56.250
  • SHE PASSED AWAY, AND IT WAS JUST HEART WRENCHING.
  • 00:29:56.270 --> 00:30:00.240
  • AND SHE BELIEVED IN THE LORD, AND SHE WAS SO POSITIVE, AND
  • 00:30:00.260 --> 00:30:06.130
  • SHE SAID THAT WHEN SHE WAS IN HER LAST MOMENTS, SHE WAS
  • 00:30:06.150 --> 00:30:11.150
  • LIKE, "WHAT CAN I DO TO MAKE IT BETTER FOR YOU?"
  • 00:30:11.170 --> 00:30:14.210
  • TALKING TO HER MOM.
  • 00:30:14.230 --> 00:30:16.200
  • I THINK SHE WAS LIKE SIX, AND SHE WAS LIKE, I'M JUST GOING.
  • 00:30:16.220 --> 00:30:21.040
  • I DON'T KNOW WHY PEOPLE ARE SO AFRAID OF DEATH.
  • 00:30:21.060 --> 00:30:24.050
  • THEY'RE JUST GOING TO A NEW PLACE, AND YOU'RE GOING
  • 00:30:24.070 --> 00:30:26.030
  • TO SEE JESUS.
  • 00:30:26.050 --> 00:30:27.170
  • AND SHE WAS LIKE SO WONDERFUL.
  • 00:30:27.190 --> 00:30:29.260
  • AND SO JUST TO SEE HOW THESE FAMILIES ARE AFFECTED AND
  • 00:30:29.280 --> 00:30:32.060
  • THESE CHILDREN GOING THROUGH THE UNIMAGINABLE THINGS THAT
  • 00:30:32.080 --> 00:30:34.240
  • THEY'RE GOING THROUGH.
  • 00:30:34.260 --> 00:30:36.110
  • - OKAY, FROM ALL OVER THE COUNTRY?
  • 00:30:36.130 --> 00:30:38.200
  • - A LOT OF THEM ARE FROM NEBRASKA, BUT SOME FROM OTHER
  • 00:30:38.220 --> 00:30:43.150
  • PARTS, AS WELL, WILL COME.
  • 00:30:43.170 --> 00:30:45.040
  • - AND YOUR GALA IS IN NEBRASKA?
  • 00:30:45.060 --> 00:30:46.170
  • - YES, LINCOLN, NEBRASKA.
  • 00:30:46.190 --> 00:30:48.000
  • - MAN, THAT IS SO COOL.
  • 00:30:48.020 --> 00:30:49.170
  • I COULDN'T EVEN FATHOM THE PAIN THE PARENTS
  • 00:30:49.190 --> 00:30:51.020
  • MUST GO THROUGH.
  • 00:30:51.040 --> 00:30:53.180
  • AS A MOM, I'VE GOT TWO LITTLE GIRLS,
  • 00:30:53.200 --> 00:30:54.280
  • AND I CAN'T KNOW IMAGINE.
  • 00:30:55.000 --> 00:30:56.080
  • - NO I CAN'T.
  • 00:30:56.100 --> 00:30:57.230
  • IT'S TOUGH, BUT THE FAMILIES ARE REMARKABLE,
  • 00:30:57.250 --> 00:30:59.220
  • JUST THE RESILIENCE.
  • 00:30:59.240 --> 00:31:01.180
  • - COMING BACK, IT'S AMAZING WHAT YOU'RE DOING,
  • 00:31:01.200 --> 00:31:04.040
  • AND THE GRACE AND FOR A LITTLE KID, THE HOPE.
  • 00:31:04.060 --> 00:31:06.230
  • REALLY, THAT'S THE WHOLE GREAT SIDE OF WHAT YOU DO, YOU HAVE
  • 00:31:06.250 --> 00:31:09.070
  • THAT OPPORTUNITY, WHICH I LOVE.
  • 00:31:09.090 --> 00:31:12.130
  • AND YOU GUYS ARE SO COMMITTED TO GIVING BACK.
  • 00:31:12.150 --> 00:31:14.270
  • TALK TO US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT WHAT YOU'RE DOING.
  • 00:31:14.290 --> 00:31:16.170
  • - SO WE HAVE THE ANDY AND JORDAN DALTON FOUNDATION, AND
  • 00:31:16.190 --> 00:31:20.010
  • WE WORK WITH KIDS WITH SPECIAL NEEDS OR WHO ARE TERMINALLY,
  • 00:31:20.030 --> 00:31:23.030
  • CHRONICALLY ILL, AND WE STARTED IT FIVE YEARS AGO?
  • 00:31:23.050 --> 00:31:27.100
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:31:27.120 --> 00:31:29.030
  • - SO FIRST YEAR THAT HE WAS DRAFTED, AND IT'S BEEN JUST
  • 00:31:29.050 --> 00:31:32.180
  • BEEN REALLY AMAZING TO SEE HOW IT'S GROWN AND HOW OUR HEARTS
  • 00:31:32.200 --> 00:31:35.050
  • HAVE CHANGED TOWARDS IT, AND JUST HOW THE LORD HAS BEEN
  • 00:31:35.070 --> 00:31:40.050
  • WORKING THROUGH US WHEN WORKING WITH THESE FAMILIES
  • 00:31:40.070 --> 00:31:42.190
  • BECAUSE IT STARTED OFF, AND WE WERE JUST OUT OF COLLEGE.
  • 00:31:42.210 --> 00:31:46.050
  • SO IT WAS LIKE, WE KNEW WE WANTED TO DO SOMETHING, BUT
  • 00:31:46.070 --> 00:31:48.210
  • REALLY HAD NO IDEA.
  • 00:31:48.230 --> 00:31:50.140
  • WE HADN'T EXPERIENCED A LOT OF THINGS YET, SO WE DIDN'T
  • 00:31:50.160 --> 00:31:52.230
  • REALLY HAVE A FULL UNDERSTANDING.
  • 00:31:52.250 --> 00:31:54.120
  • SO ONCE WE KIND OF FIGURED OUT WHAT WE WANTED TO DO, ANDY,
  • 00:31:54.140 --> 00:31:59.060
  • WELL, YOU CAN TOUCH ON HOW...
  • 00:31:59.080 --> 00:32:01.280
  • - WELL, I HAD A -- MY QUARTERBACK COACH MY FRESHMAN
  • 00:32:02.000 --> 00:32:04.260
  • YEAR AT TCU, HE HAD A GRAND DAUGHTER WHO HAD LEUKEMIA, AND
  • 00:32:04.280 --> 00:32:08.160
  • HE WAS JUST MY COACH MY FRESHMAN YEAR, BUT HE'D ALWAYS
  • 00:32:08.180 --> 00:32:12.260
  • COME BACK AROUND.
  • 00:32:12.280 --> 00:32:14.280
  • HE RETIRED AFTER THAT YEAR, SO I GOT HER NUMBER, AND WE WOULD
  • 00:32:15.000 --> 00:32:18.060
  • JUST RANDOMLY TEXT LIKE HOW ARE YOU DOING?
  • 00:32:18.080 --> 00:32:21.010
  • AND JUST DIFFERENT THINGS, AND I FELT LIKE I WAS DOING VERY
  • 00:32:21.030 --> 00:32:24.020
  • LITTLE, JUST HAVING A NORMAL CONVERSATION, BUT HE'D ALWAYS
  • 00:32:24.040 --> 00:32:28.230
  • COME BACK TO ME AND SAY, YOU HAVE NO IDEA THE
  • 00:32:28.250 --> 00:32:31.160
  • IMPACT THAT YOU'RE MAKING.
  • 00:32:31.180 --> 00:32:33.180
  • SHE DOES NOT HAVE LEUKEMIA ANYMORE.
  • 00:32:33.200 --> 00:32:38.100
  • SHE'S IN COLLEGE NOW, WHICH IS CRAZY.
  • 00:32:38.120 --> 00:32:40.150
  • - HOW AWESOME IS THAT?
  • 00:32:40.170 --> 00:32:43.100
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:32:43.120 --> 00:32:45.060
  • - I FELT LIKE I COULD REALLY MAKE AN
  • 00:32:45.080 --> 00:32:46.270
  • IMPACT IN THAT AREA WITH KIDS THAT ARE SICK.
  • 00:32:46.290 --> 00:32:48.230
  • SO I KIND OF HAD THAT EXPERIENCE.
  • 00:32:48.250 --> 00:32:50.280
  • THAT'S KIND OF WHERE WE FIGURED OUT WHERE WE WANTED TO
  • 00:32:51.000 --> 00:32:53.230
  • HELP AND WHAT YOU'RE GOAL WAS AND OUR TARGET WAS.
  • 00:32:53.250 --> 00:32:57.100
  • SO WE HAD THAT, AND THEN YOU CAN TALK ON THE REST.
  • 00:32:57.120 --> 00:33:01.050
  • - ONE OF MY BEST FRIENDS FROM HIGH SCHOOL AND ROOMMATES FROM
  • 00:33:01.070 --> 00:33:04.150
  • COLLEGE BOTH WORKED WITH KIDS WITH SPECIAL NEEDS, SO I WAS
  • 00:33:04.170 --> 00:33:07.070
  • ABLE TO SEE ONE OF THE CAPERNUM CAMPS, WHICH IS THE
  • 00:33:07.090 --> 00:33:10.200
  • YOUNG LIFE CAMP WHO HAS KIDS WITH SPECIAL NEEDS AND ABLE TO
  • 00:33:10.220 --> 00:33:12.290
  • GO TO ONE OF THEIR EVENTS.
  • 00:33:13.010 --> 00:33:15.180
  • IT WAS JUST SO TOUCHING TO SEE HOW SOME OF THESE KIDS JUST
  • 00:33:15.200 --> 00:33:18.270
  • DON'T GET THE HELP THEY NEED BECAUSE OF FUNDING, BUT HOW
  • 00:33:18.290 --> 00:33:21.290
  • JUST KEEP AND RICH THEIR HEARTS ARE.
  • 00:33:22.010 --> 00:33:25.280
  • AND SO THAT'S WHERE WE BROUGHT THAT ASPECT IN, AND THEN I
  • 00:33:26.000 --> 00:33:28.200
  • THINK AFTER WE HAD NOAH, IT JUST REALLY SHIFTED
  • 00:33:28.220 --> 00:33:31.170
  • HOW WE SAW THINGS.
  • 00:33:31.190 --> 00:33:36.170
  • AND THEN AT THAT POINT, WE HAD GOT THE BALL ROLLING, SO WE
  • 00:33:36.190 --> 00:33:40.000
  • HAD A LITTLE MORE FUNDING, AND WE WERE ABLE TO START
  • 00:33:40.020 --> 00:33:41.280
  • WHERE WE ARE NOW.
  • 00:33:42.000 --> 00:33:44.100
  • FAMILIES CAN APPLY THROUGH OUR FOUNDATION FOR GRANTS,
  • 00:33:44.120 --> 00:33:48.040
  • AND WE FUND CHEMO, RADIATION, DIFFERENT THERAPIES, AND WE'VE
  • 00:33:48.060 --> 00:33:54.110
  • JUST MOVED TO TEXAS, AND THAT'S BEEN A WHOLE NEW BALL
  • 00:33:54.130 --> 00:33:58.270
  • GAME BECAUSE THEY'RE ASKING US TO FUND FUNERALS.
  • 00:33:58.290 --> 00:34:02.000
  • AND SO THAT REALLY OPENED UP OUR EYES -- SORRY -- TO SEE.
  • 00:34:02.020 --> 00:34:12.060
  • IT IS AWESOME WE HAVE THIS PLATFORM, BUT REALLY, UNLESS
  • 00:34:12.080 --> 00:34:18.040
  • WE ARE SHARING OUR FAITH THROUGH THIS PLATFORM AND
  • 00:34:18.060 --> 00:34:22.020
  • THROUGH OUR FOUNDATION, WE CAN'T GET THE ULTIMATE CURE.
  • 00:34:22.040 --> 00:34:25.260
  • WE CAN GIVE FUNDING, AND WE CAN HELP RAISE MONEY FOR THESE
  • 00:34:25.280 --> 00:34:29.060
  • FAMILIES, BUT UNLESS THEY KNOW JESUS, I JUST COULD BE IMAGINE
  • 00:34:29.080 --> 00:34:33.220
  • GOING THROUGH WHAT THEY GO THROUGH AND HAVING NO FAITH.
  • 00:34:33.240 --> 00:34:36.050
  • AND SO WE'VE KIND OF BEEN IN THIS TRANSITION PHASE OF HOW
  • 00:34:36.070 --> 00:34:38.290
  • TO INCORPORATE THAT AND BRING THAT IN BECAUSE WE KNOW
  • 00:34:39.010 --> 00:34:41.180
  • ULTIMATELY, THAT'S WHAT WE'RE HERE FOR, AND THAT'S WHY WE'VE
  • 00:34:41.200 --> 00:34:44.070
  • BEEN ABLE TO HAVE THIS FOUNDATION AND HOW
  • 00:34:44.090 --> 00:34:45.280
  • IT'S -- SORRY.
  • 00:34:46.000 --> 00:34:49.140
  • - IT'S ONE THING TO SUPPLY FUNDING FOR SOMETHING.
  • 00:34:49.160 --> 00:34:53.200
  • IT'S ANOTHER THING TO KNOW WHY WE'RE DOING IT AND TO KNOW WHY
  • 00:34:53.220 --> 00:34:58.220
  • WE ARE GIVEN THAT MONEY, AND WHY WE ARE CALLED TO SERVE,
  • 00:34:58.240 --> 00:35:01.000
  • AND WHY WE WANT TO HELP THEM OUT.
  • 00:35:01.020 --> 00:35:02.230
  • AND SO LIKE SHE WAS SAYING, THE ULTIMATE GOAL IS FOR THEM
  • 00:35:02.250 --> 00:35:05.050
  • TO KNOW JESUS, NOT TO BE THANKFUL THAT WE
  • 00:35:05.070 --> 00:35:07.220
  • GAVE THEM MONEY. SO WE'VE SEEN --
  • 00:35:07.240 --> 00:35:12.040
  • - WHY WE'RE GIVING IT.
  • 00:35:12.060 --> 00:35:13.260
  • - YEAH, WHY WE'RE GIVING IT.
  • 00:35:13.280 --> 00:35:15.210
  • SO WE'VE GROWN A WHOLE LOT FROM THE FIRST YEAR.
  • 00:35:15.230 --> 00:35:17.190
  • WE WERE 23 WHEN WE STARTED OUR OWN FOUNDATION, WHICH WE HAD
  • 00:35:17.210 --> 00:35:19.270
  • NO IDEA WHAT WE WERE DOING, BUT WE'VE GOT A GREAT GROUP
  • 00:35:19.290 --> 00:35:24.240
  • THAT HELPS US, AND WE'VE SEEN A LOT, AND WE'VE BEEN ABLE TO
  • 00:35:24.260 --> 00:35:28.220
  • IMPACT AND HELP A LOT OF FAMILIES.
  • 00:35:28.240 --> 00:35:30.180
  • - NO DOUBT ABOUT IT.
  • 00:35:30.200 --> 00:35:32.030
  • YOU KNOW, IT'S INTERESTING, AND AGAIN, YOU'RE SO OPEN
  • 00:35:32.050 --> 00:35:35.010
  • ABOUT YOUR FAITH IN JESUS, WHICH IS REALLY WHY I WANTED
  • 00:35:35.030 --> 00:35:36.160
  • TO BE ON PRAISE PROGRAM.
  • 00:35:36.180 --> 00:35:38.100
  • I KNOW THERE ARE PEOPLE WATCHING THIS RIGHT NOW, AND
  • 00:35:38.120 --> 00:35:40.070
  • YOU'RE BEING INSPIRED BY PEOPLE THAT HAVE SUCH A HIGH
  • 00:35:40.090 --> 00:35:43.170
  • PLATFORM AND ARE REPRESENTING JESUS WELL.
  • 00:35:43.190 --> 00:35:46.200
  • I NEED TO ASK YOU THIS: SO OFTENTIMES, I'LL WATCH
  • 00:35:46.220 --> 00:35:50.200
  • AMERICAN FOOTBALL, AND THERE'S CHAPLAINS OF TEAMS, AND SO
  • 00:35:50.220 --> 00:35:53.290
  • THERE'S A LOT OF PRAYING HERE AND PRAYING HERE.
  • 00:35:54.010 --> 00:35:57.110
  • WHO DOES GOD LISTEN TO?
  • 00:35:57.130 --> 00:36:00.180
  • [LAUGHTER] I JUST NEED TO ASK.
  • 00:36:00.200 --> 00:36:06.050
  • SO WHAT IS THE ROLE OF PRAYER IN YOUR LIVES?
  • 00:36:06.070 --> 00:36:08.200
  • HOW DO YOU DO IT? HOW DOES IT WORK IN FOOTBALL?
  • 00:36:08.220 --> 00:36:12.130
  • - WELL, I ALWAYS PRAY BEFORE, AND IT'S LIKE, "LORD, LET US
  • 00:36:12.150 --> 00:36:16.160
  • BEAT THIS OTHER TEAM!"
  • 00:36:16.180 --> 00:36:19.270
  • [LAUGHTER] NO, IT'S LIKE, LORD, LET ME USE MY
  • 00:36:19.290 --> 00:36:23.040
  • TALENTS TO GLORIFY YOU.
  • 00:36:23.060 --> 00:36:25.290
  • LET YOU GET ALL THE GLORY WHILE I'M OUT THERE, AND LET
  • 00:36:26.010 --> 00:36:27.210
  • ME PLAY TO THE BEST OF MY ABILITY WITH
  • 00:36:27.230 --> 00:36:29.130
  • WHAT YOU'VE GIVEN ME.
  • 00:36:29.150 --> 00:36:31.070
  • SO I THINK THAT'S ONE THING THAT BEFORE EVERY GAME, I'M
  • 00:36:31.090 --> 00:36:33.090
  • PRAYING THAT BEFORE I GO OUT.
  • 00:36:33.110 --> 00:36:36.230
  • ANOTHER THING IS BEFORE EVERY GAME, WE GET A GROUP TOGETHER
  • 00:36:36.250 --> 00:36:40.160
  • OF GUYS THAT WANT TO, AND WE ALL GET IN A CIRCLE WITH
  • 00:36:40.180 --> 00:36:44.010
  • HANDS, AND WE'LL SAY A PRAYER BEFORE THE GAME.
  • 00:36:44.030 --> 00:36:46.050
  • WHOEVER WANTS TO PRAY CAN PRAY.
  • 00:36:46.070 --> 00:36:47.210
  • AND THEN AFTER EVERY GAME, IF YOU LOOK AT A VIDEO, THEY MAY
  • 00:36:47.230 --> 00:36:51.270
  • SHOW IT, THEY MAY NOT.
  • 00:36:51.290 --> 00:36:53.270
  • THERE'S PICTURES OF IT, BOTH TEAMS WILL GET TOGETHER AT THE
  • 00:36:53.290 --> 00:36:56.200
  • 50 YARD LINE AND GET IN THE MIDDLE OF THE LOGO AND PRAY
  • 00:36:56.220 --> 00:37:01.110
  • AFTER EVERY GAME, TOO.
  • 00:37:01.130 --> 00:37:03.080
  • - WOW, THAT'S COOL.
  • 00:37:03.100 --> 00:37:05.060
  • - IT'S BEEN REALLY COOL TO SEE THAT ASPECT OF IT.
  • 00:37:05.080 --> 00:37:08.090
  • - I LOVE THAT.
  • 00:37:08.110 --> 00:37:10.060
  • I WOULD NOT THINK THAT EVERY FOOTBALL PLAYER IS A
  • 00:37:10.080 --> 00:37:13.000
  • CHRISTIAN, ARE THEY?
  • 00:37:13.020 --> 00:37:14.130
  • - NO. [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:37:14.150 --> 00:37:17.030
  • - SO HOW DO YOU WITNESS TO YOUR TEAMMATES
  • 00:37:17.050 --> 00:37:21.150
  • IN THAT WORLD?
  • 00:37:21.170 --> 00:37:23.080
  • - YEAH, IT'S TOUGH, AND FIRST AND FOREMOST IT'S JUST
  • 00:37:23.100 --> 00:37:26.060
  • LEAD BY EXAMPLE. IT'S JUST AN EXAMPLE.
  • 00:37:26.080 --> 00:37:29.060
  • ANYBODY CAN DO IT FOR A DAY OR WHAT NOT.
  • 00:37:29.080 --> 00:37:32.000
  • IT'S JUST DOING IT ON A DAY-TO-DAY BASIS AND SHOWING A
  • 00:37:32.020 --> 00:37:36.250
  • CHRIST-LIKE EXAMPLE TO THEM.
  • 00:37:36.270 --> 00:37:39.030
  • IF YOU DO THAT -- I'VE EVEN HAD IN COLLEGE WHERE A COUPLE
  • 00:37:39.050 --> 00:37:43.150
  • OF BUDDIES OF MINE, THEY'RE CHRISTIANS, AS WELL, AND GUYS
  • 00:37:43.170 --> 00:37:46.160
  • ON THE TEAM HAD COME UP TO US AND BE LIKE, "I
  • 00:37:46.180 --> 00:37:48.140
  • WANT WHAT YOU HAVE."
  • 00:37:48.160 --> 00:37:50.080
  • BECAUSE THEY SEE STUFF, NOT JUST IN MYSELF, BUT MY
  • 00:37:50.100 --> 00:37:53.160
  • TEAMMATES, AS WELL, AND THEY'RE LIKE, "MAN, I WANT
  • 00:37:53.180 --> 00:37:55.230
  • THAT IN MY LIFE."
  • 00:37:55.250 --> 00:37:57.250
  • SO THAT ALWAYS OPENS THE DOOR FOR US TO INVITE THEM TO
  • 00:37:57.270 --> 00:38:00.090
  • BIBLE STUDY OR A CONVERSATION ABOUT THE LORD, AND THAT'S
  • 00:38:00.110 --> 00:38:02.230
  • USUALLY KIND OF HOW IT STARTS.
  • 00:38:02.250 --> 00:38:06.170
  • OTHER TIMES, A CONVERSATION WILL POP UP IN THE LOCKER ROOM
  • 00:38:06.190 --> 00:38:10.030
  • LIKE THAT ABOUT GOD, OR SOMEONE HAS ANOTHER RELIGION
  • 00:38:10.050 --> 00:38:13.140
  • THAT THEY GO ABOUT.
  • 00:38:13.160 --> 00:38:17.180
  • THERE'S GOOD, HEALTHY CONVERSATIONS.
  • 00:38:17.200 --> 00:38:19.280
  • - HAVE YOU EVER HAD ANYONE THAT JUST DOESN'T WANT
  • 00:38:20.000 --> 00:38:21.130
  • TO HEAR ABOUT IT?
  • 00:38:21.150 --> 00:38:23.110
  • - UM, YOU KNOW, I PERSONALLY HAVEN'T.
  • 00:38:23.130 --> 00:38:25.010
  • I KNOW OF SOME OTHER PEOPLE.
  • 00:38:25.030 --> 00:38:27.000
  • ONE OF THE GUYS ON OUR TEAM SAID HE HAD A TEAMMATE HIS
  • 00:38:27.020 --> 00:38:30.050
  • FIRST COUPLE OF YEARS IN THE LEAGUE THAT WAS AN ATHEIST AND
  • 00:38:30.070 --> 00:38:34.120
  • SAID THEY HAD SOME CONVERSATIONS, BUT HE WAS
  • 00:38:34.140 --> 00:38:38.080
  • STRAIGHT UP, NO.
  • 00:38:38.100 --> 00:38:39.200
  • THAT'S NOT FOR ME.
  • 00:38:39.220 --> 00:38:41.230
  • AND SOMETIMES, IT'S LIKE THAT, I GUESS.
  • 00:38:41.250 --> 00:38:43.200
  • - TOTALLY. HOW HAVE YOU NAVIGATED IT?
  • 00:38:43.220 --> 00:38:45.130
  • - YEAH, I THINK THE BIG THING IS YOU WANT TO LIVE THAT OUT
  • 00:38:45.150 --> 00:38:49.210
  • WITH HOW YOU GO ABOUT YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:38:49.230 --> 00:38:52.190
  • ALSO, LETTING THEM KNOW YOU'RE NOT PERFECT, YOU KNOW?
  • 00:38:52.210 --> 00:38:56.110
  • - THAT'S TOTALLY COOL, YEAH.
  • 00:38:56.130 --> 00:38:58.290
  • - BECAUSE THERE'S DAYS WHERE I STRUGGLE JUST AS MUCH
  • 00:38:59.010 --> 00:39:01.250
  • AS EVERYBODY ELSE.
  • 00:39:01.270 --> 00:39:03.210
  • I THINK THAT'S ONE THING.
  • 00:39:03.230 --> 00:39:05.290
  • IT'S NOT SOMETHING YOU'RE JUST GOING TO FORCE ON EVERYBODY,
  • 00:39:06.010 --> 00:39:08.110
  • BUT JUST THE WAY YOU LIVE YOUR LIFE AND THE WAY YOU INTERACT
  • 00:39:08.130 --> 00:39:11.210
  • WITH PEOPLE, HOPEFULLY THEY CAN SEE THERE'S
  • 00:39:11.230 --> 00:39:14.240
  • SOMETHING DIFFERENT.
  • 00:39:14.260 --> 00:39:16.220
  • I THINK THAT'S SOMETHING THAT, FOR REX AND I BOTH, PEOPLE
  • 00:39:16.240 --> 00:39:18.230
  • HAVE SEEN THAT.
  • 00:39:18.250 --> 00:39:20.230
  • SO IT'S BEEN GOOD, AND YOU CAN HAVE THOSE CONVERSATIONS AND,
  • 00:39:20.250 --> 00:39:23.010
  • LIKE HE SAID, INVITE PEOPLE TO STUDY.
  • 00:39:23.030 --> 00:39:25.040
  • WITH US, WE HOST A COUPLES STUDY AT OUR HOUSE, SO IT'S
  • 00:39:25.060 --> 00:39:27.070
  • LIKE, "COME OVER TO OUR HOUSE.
  • 00:39:27.090 --> 00:39:29.050
  • BRING YOUR WIFE, BRING YOUR GIRLFRIEND, WHOEVER."
  • 00:39:29.070 --> 00:39:31.010
  • - SO THEY DON'T HAVE TO BE CHRISTIANS TO COME?
  • 00:39:31.030 --> 00:39:32.250
  • - NO, THEY DON'T.
  • 00:39:32.270 --> 00:39:34.070
  • - THAT'S AWESOME. OKAY, DO YOU HAVE ANY NON-CHRISTIANS?
  • 00:39:34.090 --> 00:39:36.030
  • - UM...
  • 00:39:36.050 --> 00:39:37.170
  • - THAT WOULD WANT TO TALK TO YOU?
  • 00:39:37.190 --> 00:39:39.010
  • - THAT WOULD WANT TO TALK TO US?
  • 00:39:39.030 --> 00:39:40.280
  • [LAUGHTER] I'M TRYING TO THINK.
  • 00:39:41.000 --> 00:39:43.090
  • I DON'T KNOW EXACTLY.
  • 00:39:43.110 --> 00:39:45.220
  • - WE HAVE ALL STAGES OF THEIR FAITH.
  • 00:39:45.240 --> 00:39:48.140
  • - WHICH IS AWESOME.
  • 00:39:48.160 --> 00:39:50.080
  • YOU GIRLS REALLY HAVE ABILITY A GREAT COMMUNITY HAVEN'T YOU?
  • 00:39:50.100 --> 00:39:52.120
  • - YES.
  • 00:39:52.140 --> 00:39:53.290
  • - IS THAT HOW YOU ALL KIND OF ENCOURAGE EACH OTHER?
  • 00:39:54.010 --> 00:39:56.030
  • - YES.
  • 00:39:56.050 --> 00:39:57.120
  • - HOW DID THAT ALL START?
  • 00:39:57.140 --> 00:39:59.000
  • - GOSH, WELL, IT'S A GOOD QUESTION.
  • 00:39:59.020 --> 00:40:01.170
  • I FEEL LIKE THERE'S ALWAYS BEEN STUDIES IN THE NFL AND
  • 00:40:01.190 --> 00:40:04.100
  • COME IN, AND MY FIRST YEAR, THERE WAS A
  • 00:40:04.120 --> 00:40:08.000
  • TRANSITION OF CHAPLAINS.
  • 00:40:08.020 --> 00:40:09.200
  • AND SO WE STARTED -- IT WAS REALLY CRAZY.
  • 00:40:09.220 --> 00:40:13.250
  • ONE OF OUR OTHER GOOD FRIENDS WAS DOING A PRE-SEASON GAME.
  • 00:40:13.270 --> 00:40:17.170
  • WE HAD STUDIED THE YEAR BEFORE, AND I HAD HEARD FROM
  • 00:40:17.190 --> 00:40:21.050
  • ANOTHER GIRL ON ANOTHER TEAM A BOOK THEY READ CALLED
  • 00:40:21.070 --> 00:40:23.270
  • "KINGDOM WOMEN", AND I THINK IT WAS WRITTEN BY THE
  • 00:40:23.290 --> 00:40:27.020
  • CHAPLAIN OF THE COWBOYS.
  • 00:40:27.040 --> 00:40:29.130
  • - ALL THE DALLAS PEOPLE ARE REALLY HAPPY RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:40:29.150 --> 00:40:32.010
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:40:32.030 --> 00:40:34.020
  • - HE HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH THAT,
  • 00:40:34.040 --> 00:40:36.240
  • HE'S BASED IN DALLAS.
  • 00:40:36.260 --> 00:40:38.180
  • BUT I HAD JUST HEARD ABOUT THIS BOOK, AND I WAS THINKING
  • 00:40:38.200 --> 00:40:40.050
  • MAYBE IT IS JUST AN EASY THING.
  • 00:40:40.070 --> 00:40:41.230
  • WE DIDN'T HAVE A CHAPLAIN YET, OR THE CHAPLAIN'S WIFE, SO WE
  • 00:40:41.250 --> 00:40:44.130
  • DECIDED TO JUST START THIS BOOK AND MEET ON WEDNESDAYS AT
  • 00:40:44.150 --> 00:40:49.280
  • THIS LITTLE COFFEE SHOP DOWN THE STREET.
  • 00:40:50.000 --> 00:40:52.030
  • - IT WAS LIKE HER AND ONE OTHER GIRL.
  • 00:40:52.050 --> 00:40:54.030
  • SHE'S BEING MODEST.
  • 00:40:54.050 --> 00:40:56.010
  • - RIGHT, YES, OKAY. - J.J. HAD A HUGE PART.
  • 00:40:56.030 --> 00:40:57.140
  • - YES.
  • 00:40:57.160 --> 00:40:59.020
  • - BUT IT JUST REALLY STARTED, KIND OF REBOOTED, AND IT WAS
  • 00:40:59.040 --> 00:41:03.120
  • JUST AMAZING TO SEE HOW THAT TRANSITIONED
  • 00:41:03.140 --> 00:41:08.200
  • INTO OTHER THINGS.
  • 00:41:08.220 --> 00:41:10.130
  • AND THEN THE CHAPLAIN, THINK THEY WERE THERE FULL-TIME AT
  • 00:41:10.150 --> 00:41:14.010
  • THAT POINT, SO HIS WIFE CAME ON BOARD, AND WE WERE ABLE TO
  • 00:41:14.030 --> 00:41:16.130
  • START DIFFERENT STUDIES THROUGHOUT THE YEARS.
  • 00:41:16.150 --> 00:41:18.190
  • AND THEN I THINK ONE THING -- BECAUSE YOU HAVE PEOPLE THAT
  • 00:41:18.210 --> 00:41:22.260
  • HAVE COME FROM ALL DIFFERENT BACKGROUNDS ALL OVER, AND SO
  • 00:41:22.280 --> 00:41:27.060
  • YOU WANT PEOPLE TO FEEL COMFORTABLE BECAUSE
  • 00:41:27.080 --> 00:41:28.290
  • YOU LOVE EVERYONE.
  • 00:41:29.010 --> 00:41:32.150
  • THEY DON'T HAVE TO BE CHRISTIANS OR WHERE YOU
  • 00:41:32.170 --> 00:41:34.210
  • ARE IN YOUR FAITH.
  • 00:41:34.230 --> 00:41:36.110
  • AND LIKE ANDY SAID, WE'RE DEFINITELY NOT PERFECT.
  • 00:41:36.130 --> 00:41:38.050
  • - YOU ARE CLOSE, OKAY? YES, YES.
  • 00:41:38.070 --> 00:41:42.260
  • - SO IT WAS JUST FINDING WAYS, EVEN OUTSIDE OF STUDY, TO
  • 00:41:42.280 --> 00:41:47.010
  • BRING WOMEN IN.
  • 00:41:47.030 --> 00:41:49.050
  • MAYBE THEY DON'T WANT TO COMMIT TO SOMETHING EVERY
  • 00:41:49.070 --> 00:41:51.240
  • WEEK, SO MAYBE DOING SOMETHING.
  • 00:41:51.260 --> 00:41:53.110
  • LAST YEAR, WE DID SOMETHING ONCE A MONTH THAT WAS LIKE A
  • 00:41:53.130 --> 00:41:55.200
  • POT LUCK, AND WE WOULD HAVE A SPEAKER SKYPE IN OR HAVE
  • 00:41:55.220 --> 00:41:57.160
  • THE CHAPLAIN COME SPEAK ONCE.
  • 00:41:57.180 --> 00:41:59.280
  • SO IT'S JUST FINDING WAYS TO MAKE PEOPLE FEEL COMFORTABLE.
  • 00:42:00.020 --> 00:42:02.260
  • LIKE Y'ALL SPOKE ON, LIVING BY EXAMPLE TO THINK LIKE,
  • 00:42:02.280 --> 00:42:07.290
  • I WANT THAT.
  • 00:42:08.010 --> 00:42:10.050
  • BECAUSE IT'S SO EASY TO GET LOST IN THE MIX AND IN THE
  • 00:42:10.070 --> 00:42:13.180
  • SHUFFLE OF EVERY DAY LIFE.
  • 00:42:13.200 --> 00:42:15.280
  • HONESTLY, WITHOUT THAT GROUP OF WOMEN, I DON'T UNDERSTAND
  • 00:42:16.000 --> 00:42:20.270
  • HOW WE WOULD HAVE GOTTEN THROUGH IT BECAUSE IT'S JUST
  • 00:42:20.290 --> 00:42:23.210
  • SUCH A GREAT COMMUNITY TO HOLD YOU ACCOUNTABLE, AND YOU'RE
  • 00:42:23.230 --> 00:42:25.270
  • GOING THROUGH SOMETHING THAT MAYBE SOMEONE ELSE HAS
  • 00:42:25.290 --> 00:42:27.240
  • EXPERIENCED OR VICE-VERSA.
  • 00:42:27.260 --> 00:42:29.140
  • AND IT'S JUST BEEN AMAZING TO SEE HOW THE HOLY SPIRIT HAS
  • 00:42:29.160 --> 00:42:33.020
  • WORKED THROUGH EACH AND EVERY PERSON ON THE TEAM, WHETHER
  • 00:42:33.040 --> 00:42:34.200
  • THEY KNOW IT OR NOT.
  • 00:42:34.220 --> 00:42:36.150
  • SO IT'S JUST REAL ENCOURAGING TO HAVE THAT BECAUSE I DON'T
  • 00:42:36.170 --> 00:42:39.100
  • THINK PEOPLE UNDERSTAND.
  • 00:42:39.120 --> 00:42:41.110
  • I THINK THEY SEE THE NFL, AND THEY HAVE THIS PERCEPTION OF
  • 00:42:41.130 --> 00:42:43.150
  • WHAT IT'S LIKE AND WHAT THE PEOPLE ARE LIKE IN IT, AND
  • 00:42:43.170 --> 00:42:47.240
  • ONCE YOU'RE IN IT, THERE'S JUST INCREDIBLE WOMEN AND MEN,
  • 00:42:47.260 --> 00:42:50.200
  • AND HOW GOD USING THEM, THAT'S WHAT NEEDS TO BE SHOWN.
  • 00:42:50.220 --> 00:42:55.110
  • - YEAH, IT'S POWERFUL.
  • 00:42:55.130 --> 00:42:57.230
  • YOU FOUND A GREAT SISTERHOOD HERE, EH?
  • 00:42:57.250 --> 00:43:00.260
  • - YES, IN CINCINNATI? YES, THROUGH BIBLE STUDY, AND WE ARE
  • 00:43:00.280 --> 00:43:06.290
  • IN A DISCIPLESHIP TRAINING GROUP NOW THROUGH OUR CHURCH
  • 00:43:07.010 --> 00:43:11.070
  • IN CINCINNATI, SO THAT'S GREAT.
  • 00:43:11.090 --> 00:43:13.040
  • JUST THROUGH BIBLE STUDY, I'VE REALLY GROWN A LOT, GROWN
  • 00:43:13.060 --> 00:43:17.030
  • WITH WOMEN, AND JUST THE IRON SHARPENING IRON.
  • 00:43:17.050 --> 00:43:20.270
  • I THINK THAT'S HUGE, JUST TO BE ABLE TO BRING OTHERS
  • 00:43:20.290 --> 00:43:25.010
  • ALONGSIDE OF YOU IN THAT WHEN YOU ARE BEING UP
  • 00:43:25.030 --> 00:43:26.270
  • LIFTED AND POURED INTO.
  • 00:43:26.290 --> 00:43:28.220
  • IT'S JUST SO IMPORTANT.
  • 00:43:28.240 --> 00:43:30.090
  • ONE OF OUR FRIENDS SAID IT LIKE THOSE MONKEYS
  • 00:43:30.110 --> 00:43:32.250
  • THAT HAVE TWO ARMS.
  • 00:43:32.270 --> 00:43:34.170
  • SOMEBODY'S PULLING YOU UP, BUT YOU NEED TO BE PULLING
  • 00:43:34.190 --> 00:43:36.280
  • SOMEBODY UP WITH YOU, AS WELL.
  • 00:43:37.000 --> 00:43:38.280
  • - IT'S BEEN GREAT.
  • 00:43:39.000 --> 00:43:40.250
  • HERE IS THE FACT OF THE NOW YOU'VE GOT THIS SISTERHOOD
  • 00:43:40.270 --> 00:43:45.010
  • THING HAPPENING, BUT TRUTH IS, THOUGH, THERE'S A LOT OF
  • 00:43:45.030 --> 00:43:49.070
  • INSECURITY WHEN IT COMES TO THE NFL, AND I WAS TALKING TO
  • 00:43:49.090 --> 00:43:51.210
  • YOU GUYS IN THE BACK, AND THERE ARE TIMES WHEN Y'ALL
  • 00:43:51.230 --> 00:43:54.160
  • DON'T KNOW WHAT THE NEXT SEASON'S GOING TO HOLD.
  • 00:43:54.180 --> 00:43:58.010
  • YOU WERE JUST TELLING ME RIGHT NOW YOU'RE IN...
  • 00:43:58.030 --> 00:44:00.050
  • - FREE AGENCY.
  • 00:44:00.070 --> 00:44:02.010
  • - THAT'S IT. I KNEW THERE WAS A WORD FOR IT. I'M AUSTRALIAN.
  • 00:44:02.030 --> 00:44:05.080
  • I'M TRYING MY HARDEST HERE, OKAY.
  • 00:44:05.100 --> 00:44:07.240
  • - YEAH, SO I HAD A FOUR-YEAR ROOKIE CONTRACT WITH THE
  • 00:44:07.260 --> 00:44:11.190
  • BENGALS, AND THAT'S ABOUT TO END THIS COMING UP WEEK, SO I
  • 00:44:11.210 --> 00:44:15.140
  • DON'T KNOW IF I'LL BE BACK IN CINCINNATI OR IF
  • 00:44:15.160 --> 00:44:17.070
  • I'LL BE SOMEWHERE ELSE.
  • 00:44:17.090 --> 00:44:18.250
  • - WE'RE TRYING TO GET HIM BACK, TRYING TO GET HIM BACK.
  • 00:44:18.270 --> 00:44:21.290
  • - WHAT DO YOU THINK? OKAY. - TRYING TO GET HIM BACK.
  • 00:44:22.010 --> 00:44:23.280
  • - HE'S GIVING HIM A WORD FROM THE LORD RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:44:24.000 --> 00:44:25.200
  • [LAUGHTER] - BUT YEAH, THERE'S UNCERTAINTY THERE.
  • 00:44:25.220 --> 00:44:27.190
  • THERE'S ALSO PROBABLY BIG UNCERTAINTY MY SECOND
  • 00:44:27.210 --> 00:44:31.110
  • YEAR IN THE NFL.
  • 00:44:31.130 --> 00:44:33.090
  • IN PRESEASON, I HURT MY KNEE PRETTY BAD, AND THAT'S AT THE
  • 00:44:33.110 --> 00:44:37.200
  • TIME WHEN YOU DON'T KNOW IF YOU'RE GOING TO MAKE THE TEAM,
  • 00:44:37.220 --> 00:44:40.120
  • OR IF YOU'RE NOT, IF YOU'RE NOT GOING TO HAVE A JOB OR
  • 00:44:40.140 --> 00:44:42.080
  • WHATEVER AT THE TIME.
  • 00:44:42.100 --> 00:44:43.230
  • - BECAUSE YOU CAN REALLY BE LET GO AT ANY TIME.
  • 00:44:43.250 --> 00:44:46.000
  • - RIGHT - YOU HAVE A CONTRACT.
  • 00:44:46.020 --> 00:44:48.160
  • - EVEN IF YOU HAVE A CONTRACT?
  • 00:44:48.180 --> 00:44:50.070
  • - YEAH, ABSOLUTELY.
  • 00:44:50.090 --> 00:44:52.000
  • - WOW. - NOTHING'S REALLY GUARANTEED.
  • 00:44:52.020 --> 00:44:53.210
  • - WOW.
  • 00:44:53.230 --> 00:44:55.180
  • - SO THAT WAS DEFINITELY UNCERTAINTY.
  • 00:44:55.200 --> 00:44:57.130
  • - RIGHT, RIGHT. - JOB SECURITY IS LOW.
  • 00:44:57.150 --> 00:45:00.250
  • - SO HOW DID YOU FEEL?
  • 00:45:00.270 --> 00:45:02.180
  • YOU HAD THIS KNEE INJURY WHICH COULD POTENTIALLY PUT YOU OUT?
  • 00:45:02.200 --> 00:45:05.090
  • - RIGHT, SO IT COULD END MY CAREER.
  • 00:45:05.110 --> 00:45:07.240
  • YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT COULD HAPPEN.
  • 00:45:07.260 --> 00:45:09.170
  • I ALWAYS HAD DREAMS ABOUT PLAYING IN THE NFL AND DOING
  • 00:45:09.190 --> 00:45:14.030
  • GREAT THINGS, SO AT THAT TIME, IT WAS VERY KIND
  • 00:45:14.050 --> 00:45:18.090
  • OF A LOW MOMENT.
  • 00:45:18.110 --> 00:45:20.040
  • BUT SHE WAS BY MY SIDE PULLING ME THROUGH IT, AND I ENDED UP
  • 00:45:20.060 --> 00:45:23.060
  • MAKING THE TEAM, AND GOD DEFINITELY HAS A PLAN FOR US.
  • 00:45:23.080 --> 00:45:27.190
  • - TOTALLY. HOW DID YOU HOLD ONTO YOUR FAITH IN THAT SEASON?
  • 00:45:27.210 --> 00:45:29.270
  • - PRAYER, CONSTANTLY.
  • 00:45:29.290 --> 00:45:33.040
  • [LAUGHTER] IT WAS TOUGH, BUT I MADE IT THROUGH.
  • 00:45:33.060 --> 00:45:36.210
  • - HE'S SO RESILIENT.
  • 00:45:36.230 --> 00:45:38.230
  • I FEEL LIKE THE LORD REALLY BLESSED HIM WITH
  • 00:45:38.250 --> 00:45:40.140
  • PATIENCE AND RESILIENCY.
  • 00:45:40.160 --> 00:45:42.190
  • SO HE'S SO KIND AND HUMBLE, BUT SO STRONG.
  • 00:45:42.210 --> 00:45:47.220
  • SO I FEEL LIKE THAT'S SUCH A GIFT THAT HE'S BEEN GIVEN.
  • 00:45:47.240 --> 00:45:51.010
  • - SO HOW DO YOU -- BECAUSE MOST CHICKS LIKE A BIT OF SECURITY
  • 00:45:51.030 --> 00:45:55.000
  • AND A LITTLE BIT OF CONSISTENCY AND A LITTLE BIT OF STABILITY.
  • 00:45:55.020 --> 00:45:58.100
  • SO WHAT WE SEE IN THE NEWS IS THE BIG FLASHY LIVES
  • 00:45:58.120 --> 00:46:01.250
  • OF NFL ATHLETES.
  • 00:46:01.270 --> 00:46:03.250
  • IT'S ALL SO COOL, BUT HERE I WILL JUST FINDING OUT THAT AT
  • 00:46:03.270 --> 00:46:06.250
  • ANY MOMENT, YOU COULD BE LET GO, AND YOU DON'T KNOW WHERE
  • 00:46:06.270 --> 00:46:08.270
  • YOU'RE GOING TO END UP NEXT SEASON.
  • 00:46:08.290 --> 00:46:11.150
  • SO JUST AS YOU MAKE ALL OF THESE FRIENDS, AND YOU BUILD A
  • 00:46:11.170 --> 00:46:15.010
  • SISTERHOOD, SO HOW DO YOU STAY STRONG IN THE MIDST
  • 00:46:15.030 --> 00:46:17.070
  • OF ALL OF THAT?
  • 00:46:17.090 --> 00:46:18.270
  • - THAT'S JUST SOMETHING I DEAL WITH, I STRUGGLE WITH IN MY
  • 00:46:18.290 --> 00:46:20.180
  • WALK WITH THE LORD IS THE DESIRE FOR STABILITY AND THE
  • 00:46:20.200 --> 00:46:24.080
  • DESIRE FOR A PLAN AND CONTROL.
  • 00:46:24.100 --> 00:46:27.210
  • THAT'S SOMETHING THAT I STRUGGLE THROUGH.
  • 00:46:27.230 --> 00:46:30.020
  • AND SO BEING A PART OF THIS WORLD AND THIS FUNKY ARENA, NO
  • 00:46:30.040 --> 00:46:35.010
  • PUN INTENDED, BUT IT'S VERY HUMBLING AND I'VE LEARNED A
  • 00:46:35.030 --> 00:46:44.210
  • LOT ABOUT MY WEAKNESSES IN THAT AND HAVE LEARNED JUST
  • 00:46:44.230 --> 00:46:50.130
  • THAT EVEN THOUGH I MAY NOT KNOW WHERE I'M GOING TO BE
  • 00:46:50.150 --> 00:46:54.000
  • LITERALLY IN A MONTH.
  • 00:46:54.020 --> 00:46:56.090
  • WE DON'T KNOW WHERE WE'RE GOING TO BE, WHAT CITY WE'RE
  • 00:46:56.110 --> 00:46:58.180
  • GOING TO BE MOVING TO.
  • 00:46:58.200 --> 00:47:00.240
  • THE LORD HAS THAT, AND THE LORD HAS PLANNED OUT ALL OF MY
  • 00:47:00.260 --> 00:47:05.150
  • DAYS AND JUST THE TRUST IN HIM AND WORKING THROUGH THAT AND
  • 00:47:05.170 --> 00:47:09.210
  • NOT RELYING ON MY OWN STRENGTH AND NOT RELYING ON CONTROLLING
  • 00:47:09.230 --> 00:47:13.230
  • THINGS, I THINK THAT'S BEEN WHAT HE'S TEACHING ME THROUGH
  • 00:47:13.250 --> 00:47:19.080
  • THIS SEASON OF LIFE IS JUST TRUSTING IN HIM AND RELYING ON
  • 00:47:19.100 --> 00:47:22.220
  • HIS WORD AND NOT MY OWN OR WHAT OTHER PEOPLE SAY.
  • 00:47:22.240 --> 00:47:25.160
  • - THAT'S SO POWERFUL.
  • 00:47:25.180 --> 00:47:27.020
  • I HOPE YOU ALL JUST GOT THAT.
  • 00:47:27.040 --> 00:47:28.270
  • THERE'S SO MUCH GREAT TRUTH IN THAT, "TRUST IN THE LORD WITH
  • 00:47:28.290 --> 00:47:31.260
  • ALL OF YOUR HEART, AND LEAN NOT ON YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDING,
  • 00:47:31.280 --> 00:47:34.050
  • BUT IN ALL OF YOUR WISE ACKNOWLEDGE HIM, AND HE'LL
  • 00:47:34.070 --> 00:47:36.090
  • DIRECT YOUR PATHS."
  • 00:47:36.110 --> 00:47:38.030
  • BECAUSE IT SOUNDS SO EASY TO DO THAT, BUT THE TRUTH IS
  • 00:47:38.050 --> 00:47:40.200
  • EVERY ISSUE IS A TRUSTING GOD ISSUE.
  • 00:47:40.220 --> 00:47:44.010
  • SO YOU CAN STILL BE IN THE LIMELIGHT, YOU CAN STILL BE IN
  • 00:47:44.030 --> 00:47:46.040
  • THE PRESS, BUT YOU BETTER BE CLOSE TO JESUS BECAUSE AT THE
  • 00:47:46.060 --> 00:47:49.050
  • END OF DAY, ANYTHING CAN CHANGE, WHICH IS TRUE FOR ALL
  • 00:47:49.070 --> 00:47:51.220
  • OF US, BUT I'M JUST THINKING THAT'S A LOT OF FAITH.
  • 00:47:51.240 --> 00:47:54.210
  • SO EVEN THERE, GOD'S STILL KEEPING YOU ON A VERY
  • 00:47:54.230 --> 00:47:57.260
  • DAY-BY-DAY FAITH JOURNEY, ISN'T HE? IT'S PRETTY AMAZING.
  • 00:47:57.280 --> 00:48:00.230
  • - YEAH, IT'S GREAT. - WHICH IS WILD.
  • 00:48:00.250 --> 00:48:03.060
  • - HAVE YOU EVER HAD AN INJURY?
  • 00:48:03.080 --> 00:48:05.110
  • - I HAVE, YEAH.
  • 00:48:05.130 --> 00:48:07.000
  • TWO YEARS AGO, I BROKE MY THUMB ON MY RIGHT HAND, WHICH
  • 00:48:07.020 --> 00:48:09.070
  • IS KIND OF AN IMPORTANT HAND TO HAVE TO THROW.
  • 00:48:09.090 --> 00:48:11.200
  • - YOU THINK? YEAH, OKAY.
  • 00:48:11.220 --> 00:48:13.240
  • - AND IT WAS IN THE BEST SEASON THAT I'VE HAD.
  • 00:48:13.260 --> 00:48:15.260
  • AND SO IT WAS THE 13TH GAME OF THE YEAR.
  • 00:48:15.280 --> 00:48:19.280
  • WE WERE GOING IN.
  • 00:48:20.000 --> 00:48:22.170
  • WE WERE GOING TO BE MAKING THE PLAY OFFS.
  • 00:48:22.190 --> 00:48:24.140
  • WE FELT LIKE IT WAS GOING TO BE OUR CHANCE, AND THEN I GOT
  • 00:48:24.160 --> 00:48:28.010
  • HURT AT THAT TIME.
  • 00:48:28.030 --> 00:48:29.170
  • I THINK SHE REMEMBERS, JUST GOING INTO THE LOCKER ROOM AND
  • 00:48:29.190 --> 00:48:32.190
  • GETTING AN X-RAY ON MY HAND AND REALIZING AND HIM SAYING,
  • 00:48:32.210 --> 00:48:34.230
  • "YOUR THUMB'S BROKEN, AND YOU'RE NOT GOING TO
  • 00:48:34.250 --> 00:48:36.250
  • BE ABLE TO PLAY."
  • 00:48:36.270 --> 00:48:38.190
  • THAT WAS TOUGH, BUT THE ONE THING I JUST TELLING MYSELF
  • 00:48:38.210 --> 00:48:42.160
  • WAS, OKAY, GOD'S PLAN IS BIGGER THAN MINE.
  • 00:48:42.180 --> 00:48:45.070
  • GOD'S PLAN IS BIGGER THAN MINE.
  • 00:48:45.090 --> 00:48:47.160
  • OF COURSE, I WANTED TO FINISH THE SEASON OUT, AND I WANTED
  • 00:48:47.180 --> 00:48:49.160
  • TO GO IN AND WIN THE SUPERBOWL AND ALL OF THAT KIND OF STUFF.
  • 00:48:49.180 --> 00:48:52.260
  • AND AT THE TIME, I WAS PRAYING, JUST HEAL IT BY THE
  • 00:48:52.280 --> 00:48:56.180
  • CHAMPIONSHIP GAME.
  • 00:48:56.200 --> 00:48:58.040
  • I'LL COME BACK AND THEN WE'LL WIN, BUT THAT WASN'T THE CASE.
  • 00:48:58.060 --> 00:49:01.170
  • YOU REALLY REALIZE THAT YOU DON'T HAVE CONTROL OVER YOUR
  • 00:49:01.190 --> 00:49:04.290
  • SITUATION, AND LIKE I SAID, WE PRAYED FOR GOD'S PLAN,
  • 00:49:05.010 --> 00:49:10.290
  • AND IT'S BIGGER THAN OURS.
  • 00:49:11.010 --> 00:49:12.210
  • - ABSOLUTELY. I JUST KEEP HEARING ABOUT
  • 00:49:12.230 --> 00:49:15.100
  • THE LACK OF CONTROL.
  • 00:49:15.120 --> 00:49:17.130
  • YOU SAID I LOVE CONTROL AND STABILITY, SO GOD JUST
  • 00:49:17.150 --> 00:49:19.030
  • THREW ME INTO THIS LIFE.
  • 00:49:19.050 --> 00:49:20.230
  • - YEAH, HE DID.
  • 00:49:20.250 --> 00:49:22.100
  • IT'S LIKE, I'M GOING TO STRENGTHEN YOU HERE.
  • 00:49:22.120 --> 00:49:24.010
  • - WHICH IS PRETTY POWERFUL.
  • 00:49:24.030 --> 00:49:25.240
  • SO IN THE MIDST OF IT ALL, IT'S JUST STAYING ROOTED AND
  • 00:49:25.260 --> 00:49:28.060
  • GROUND THE IN THE WORD IS WHAT I'M HEARING YOU GUYS SAY AND
  • 00:49:28.080 --> 00:49:30.270
  • IN JESUS, WHICH IS THE SAME FOR EVERY ONE OF US.
  • 00:49:30.290 --> 00:49:33.180
  • I KNOW SO MANY OF YOU HAVE BEEN WATCHING THIS PROGRAM.
  • 00:49:33.200 --> 00:49:35.270
  • THERE'S NO DOUBT YOU'VE BEEN INSPIRED BY SO MANY ATHLETES,
  • 00:49:35.290 --> 00:49:39.270
  • AND IT IS FOR ALL OF US A GREAT INSPIRATION TO SEE
  • 00:49:39.290 --> 00:49:43.090
  • PEOPLE THAT ARE IN THE LIMELIGHT THAT ARE A GREAT
  • 00:49:43.110 --> 00:49:45.200
  • WITNESS FOR JESUS CHRIST THAT ARE CONTINUING TO HONOR THE
  • 00:49:45.220 --> 00:49:48.240
  • LORD IN EVERY WAY, BUT HERE'S THE TRUTH.
  • 00:49:48.260 --> 00:49:50.290
  • THAT IS THE CASE FOR EVERY SINGLE ONE OF US.
  • 00:49:51.010 --> 00:49:53.100
  • WHEREVER WE ARE, WE ARE CALLED TO BE SALT AND LIGHT AND TO BE
  • 00:49:53.120 --> 00:49:55.130
  • AMBASSADORS FOR JESUS.
  • 00:49:55.150 --> 00:49:58.120
  • I WONDER WITH YOU GUYS, DO YOU FEEL SOMETIMES THAT PEOPLE PUT
  • 00:49:58.140 --> 00:50:01.240
  • PRESSURE ON YOU THAT SOMEHOW YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE THE
  • 00:50:01.260 --> 00:50:04.050
  • SUPER CHRISTIAN BECAUSE THE SPOTLIGHT'S ON YOU?
  • 00:50:04.070 --> 00:50:06.240
  • WHEREAS -- ACTUALLY EVERY CHRISTIAN IS SUPPOSED TO BE A
  • 00:50:06.260 --> 00:50:09.150
  • CHRISTIAN ALL THE TIME.
  • 00:50:09.170 --> 00:50:11.040
  • BUT DO YOU EVER KIND OF FEEL A DISPROPORTIONATE PRESSURE THAT
  • 00:50:11.060 --> 00:50:13.160
  • PEOPLE ARE SOMEHOW EXPECTING YOU TO BE MORE
  • 00:50:13.180 --> 00:50:15.080
  • HOLIER THAN THOU?
  • 00:50:15.100 --> 00:50:16.270
  • - I THINK LIKE I WAS SAYING EARLIER, WE'RE NOT PERFECT.
  • 00:50:16.290 --> 00:50:19.270
  • WE'RE ALL SINNERS, AND WE HAVE STRUGGLES JUST
  • 00:50:19.290 --> 00:50:23.210
  • LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE.
  • 00:50:23.230 --> 00:50:25.170
  • SOME PEOPLE, THEY SEE US ON TV, SO THEY HAVE THIS ONE VIEW
  • 00:50:25.190 --> 00:50:28.000
  • OF US, BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY, WE'RE JUST NORMAL PEOPLE.
  • 00:50:28.020 --> 00:50:32.240
  • SO I THINK THAT'S ONE THING THAT FOR US, I THINK PEOPLE
  • 00:50:32.260 --> 00:50:37.180
  • HAVE THIS VIEW OF WHAT WE ARE AND WHAT WE SHOULD BE, BUT
  • 00:50:37.200 --> 00:50:41.200
  • AGAIN, WE'RE JUST TRYING TO BE WHAT GOD'S CALLED US TO BE.
  • 00:50:41.220 --> 00:50:45.050
  • - PRETTY AWESOME.
  • 00:50:45.070 --> 00:50:46.290
  • YOU'VE OBVIOUSLY GOT YOUR IDENTITY IN CHRIST ROOTED.
  • 00:50:47.010 --> 00:50:51.000
  • I LOVE THAT COMMENT YOU SAID, REX, THAT "FOOTBALL'S SORT OF
  • 00:50:51.020 --> 00:50:54.040
  • WHAT I DO. IT'S NOT WHO I AM."
  • 00:50:54.060 --> 00:50:55.240
  • HOW HAVE YOU GOTTEN TO THAT PLACE?
  • 00:50:55.260 --> 00:50:57.150
  • - YEAH, MAN, THAT'S A GOOD QUESTION.
  • 00:50:57.170 --> 00:51:01.030
  • I'VE HAD MANY MENTORS ALONG THE WAY, MANY PEOPLE THAT HAVE
  • 00:51:01.050 --> 00:51:05.190
  • GUIDED ME TOWARDS THAT, AND AS FAR AS SPORTS GOES, I HAD MY
  • 00:51:05.210 --> 00:51:10.160
  • RUNNING BACK COACH IN COLLEGE, ACTUALLY, WAS ONE OF THE HEAD
  • 00:51:10.180 --> 00:51:13.180
  • FIGURES OF THE F. C. A.
  • 00:51:13.200 --> 00:51:15.100
  • IN NEBRASKA, THE FELLOWSHIP OF CHRISTIAN ATHLETES.
  • 00:51:15.120 --> 00:51:17.010
  • AND HE REALLY STRENGTHENED ME AND REALIZED
  • 00:51:17.030 --> 00:51:22.170
  • THAT YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:51:22.190 --> 00:51:24.180
  • IT'S OKAY TO BRING GOD INTO SPORTS,
  • 00:51:24.200 --> 00:51:26.000
  • INTO FOOTBALL. IT'S OKAY.
  • 00:51:26.020 --> 00:51:27.240
  • SO BEFORE EVERY PRACTICE OR GAME, HE WOULD HAVE A STORY OR
  • 00:51:27.260 --> 00:51:30.020
  • A VERSE FROM THE BIBLE THAT WE WOULD REFLECT ON WHILE WE WERE
  • 00:51:30.040 --> 00:51:31.250
  • OUT ON THE FIELD.
  • 00:51:31.270 --> 00:51:34.060
  • AND PRETTY MUCH OUR FOCUS, WHILE WE WERE OUT THERE, IF WE
  • 00:51:34.080 --> 00:51:37.190
  • EVER GOT DISTRACTED OR NEEDED SOMETHING TO LEAN ON, IT WAS
  • 00:51:37.210 --> 00:51:40.060
  • TO FOCUS ON THE CROSS.
  • 00:51:40.080 --> 00:51:41.180
  • - WOW.
  • 00:51:41.200 --> 00:51:43.100
  • - THE FIELD GOAL POSTS, EVEN THOUGH IT'S NOT A CROSS, BUT
  • 00:51:43.120 --> 00:51:47.110
  • HE SAID TO THINK OF THAT AS YOUR CROSS.
  • 00:51:47.130 --> 00:51:49.110
  • SO IF YOU'RE EVER OUT THERE, AND YOU'RE DISTRACTED, JUST
  • 00:51:49.130 --> 00:51:52.010
  • LOOK TO THAT AND SET YOUR EYES ON WHAT YOU NEED TO BE DOING.
  • 00:51:52.030 --> 00:51:56.100
  • - WOW. - YEAH.
  • 00:51:56.120 --> 00:51:59.250
  • - A WAY TO LOOK AT FOOTBALL A LITTLE DIFFERENTLY.
  • 00:51:59.270 --> 00:52:02.050
  • - TOTALLY, TOTALLY.
  • 00:52:02.070 --> 00:52:03.240
  • - YEAH, SO IT'S OUT THERE, AND COLOSSIANS 3, "SEEK THE THINGS
  • 00:52:03.260 --> 00:52:08.110
  • ABOVE, NOT THE THINGS ON THE EARTH" IS A BIG THING THAT
  • 00:52:08.130 --> 00:52:10.200
  • KIND OF ALWAYS REMINDS ME OF WHERE MY FOCUS SOMEBODY
  • 00:52:10.220 --> 00:52:12.270
  • OUT ON THE FIELD.
  • 00:52:12.290 --> 00:52:15.210
  • IT'S TO SEEK THE THINGS OF THE LORD, NOT THE SELFISH DESIRES,
  • 00:52:15.230 --> 00:52:18.260
  • WHETHER THAT'S AWARDS OR STATISTICS YOU'RE GOING TO
  • 00:52:18.280 --> 00:52:21.290
  • ACCOMPLISH OUT THERE, BUT DOING IT FOR GOD,
  • 00:52:22.010 --> 00:52:24.210
  • DOING IT FOR HIS GLORY.
  • 00:52:24.230 --> 00:52:26.050
  • - THAT'S POWERFUL.
  • 00:52:26.070 --> 00:52:27.240
  • ANDY, HAVE YOU HAD ANY MENTORS THAT HAVE HELPED YOU IN YOUR
  • 00:52:27.260 --> 00:52:30.010
  • FAITH ALONG THE WAY AS AN ATHLETE?
  • 00:52:30.030 --> 00:52:31.210
  • - YEAH, I FEEL VERY FORTUNATE.
  • 00:52:31.230 --> 00:52:34.270
  • I GREW UP IN A CHRISTIAN HOME SO I HAD MY
  • 00:52:34.290 --> 00:52:37.000
  • PARENTS AND MY DAD. HE'S BEEN A GREAT MENTOR.
  • 00:52:37.020 --> 00:52:41.170
  • BUT ALSO IN HIGH SCHOOL, I HAD A COACH WHERE BEFORE EVERY
  • 00:52:41.190 --> 00:52:45.220
  • WEEK GAME PLAN, WE'D HAVE A TIP SHEET OF WHAT THE TEAM
  • 00:52:45.240 --> 00:52:50.150
  • DOES, THE DEFENSES AND ALL OF THAT STUFF, BUT THEN ALSO AT
  • 00:52:50.170 --> 00:52:53.040
  • THE BOTTOM, HE'D HAD A VERSE OR SOMETHING OR A BOOK THAT
  • 00:52:53.060 --> 00:52:56.250
  • HE'S READING, AND HE WOULD APPLY IT TO
  • 00:52:56.270 --> 00:52:58.220
  • WHAT WE WERE DOING.
  • 00:52:58.240 --> 00:53:02.050
  • HE WANTED US TO GROW AS MEN AT THAT POINT RATHER THAN JUST
  • 00:53:02.070 --> 00:53:06.020
  • HE'S JUST THERE TO TEACH US FOOTBALL.
  • 00:53:06.040 --> 00:53:09.100
  • I THINK A LONG THE WAY THE SAME THING; F. C. A.
  • 00:53:09.120 --> 00:53:12.130
  • AND THE DIFFERENT CHAPLAINS THAT WE'VE HAD
  • 00:53:12.150 --> 00:53:15.180
  • HAVE BEEN GREAT.
  • 00:53:15.200 --> 00:53:17.240
  • - WHICH IS FANTASTIC.
  • 00:53:17.260 --> 00:53:19.280
  • SO YOU BOTH KIND OF HAVE PEOPLE YOU CAN CALL IF
  • 00:53:20.000 --> 00:53:22.050
  • SOMETHING'S GOING ON?
  • 00:53:22.070 --> 00:53:24.070
  • - ABSOLUTELY. - YES, DEFINITELY.
  • 00:53:24.090 --> 00:53:25.240
  • - I LOVE ALL OF THAT. I THINK I SPOKE.
  • 00:53:25.260 --> 00:53:27.070
  • I MET YOU GUYS AT PROFESSIONAL ATHLETES, IS THAT RIGHT?
  • 00:53:27.090 --> 00:53:31.230
  • AND IT JUST SEEMED LIKE THERE WAS A GOOD GROUP OF PEOPLE
  • 00:53:31.250 --> 00:53:35.180
  • THAT JUST ARE TRULY COMMITTED TO STANDING BY ONE ANOTHER AND
  • 00:53:35.200 --> 00:53:38.280
  • DOING THAT, WHICH I THINK IS JUST LIKE AWESOME.
  • 00:53:39.000 --> 00:53:41.110
  • I THINK IT SHOWS THE NEED FOR ALL OF US FOR COMMUNITY,
  • 00:53:41.130 --> 00:53:43.140
  • WHETHER IT'S YOU CHICKS, WHETHER IT'S AS
  • 00:53:43.160 --> 00:53:46.020
  • COUPLES WITH OTHERS.
  • 00:53:46.040 --> 00:53:47.180
  • I ALWAYS SAY THAT, SO THAT'S OKAY.
  • 00:53:47.200 --> 00:53:49.030
  • BUT GOD NEVER DESIGNED US TO DO LIFE ALONE.
  • 00:53:49.050 --> 00:53:51.180
  • I THINK THAT'S THE WHOLE DEAL, AND I THINK THAT'S
  • 00:53:51.200 --> 00:53:53.060
  • WHAT WE'RE ALL LEARNING.
  • 00:53:53.080 --> 00:53:54.230
  • WE'RE TALKING ABOUT TWO PEOPLE THAT ARE IN THE LIMELIGHT,
  • 00:53:54.250 --> 00:53:58.280
  • ABOUT AS LIMELIGHT AS IT GETS.
  • 00:53:59.000 --> 00:54:00.180
  • THE ONE THING THAT I HAVE LEARNED SINCE MOVING TO
  • 00:54:00.200 --> 00:54:04.090
  • AMERICA IS THAT THERE IS GOD THE FATHER, SON, AND HOLY
  • 00:54:04.110 --> 00:54:06.070
  • SPIRIT AND FOOTBALL.
  • 00:54:06.090 --> 00:54:07.250
  • SO THERE IS NO DOUBT ABOUT IT THAT IT IS A VERY BIG DEAL.
  • 00:54:07.270 --> 00:54:11.010
  • SO I KNOW ALL OF US ARE SO GRATEFUL TO GOD THAT, AS
  • 00:54:11.030 --> 00:54:15.130
  • COUPLES, HAVE BEEN SO COMMITTED TO HONORING JESUS,
  • 00:54:15.150 --> 00:54:20.000
  • TO BEING STEADFAST IN YOUR FAITH.
  • 00:54:20.020 --> 00:54:21.140
  • AND TO BE HONEST, IT INSPIRES ME.
  • 00:54:21.160 --> 00:54:23.060
  • LIKE WHEN I SIT DOWN -- YOU DO.
  • 00:54:23.080 --> 00:54:25.030
  • YOU PUMP ME UP BECAUSE I'M LIKE, IF YOU'RE GOING TO BE
  • 00:54:25.050 --> 00:54:27.230
  • OUT THERE, AND THE LIMELIGHT IS ON YOU, AND YOU'RE
  • 00:54:27.250 --> 00:54:30.040
  • DEFLECTING THAT LIGHT TO JESUS, IT'S JUST SUCH A
  • 00:54:30.060 --> 00:54:32.150
  • WONDERFUL THING FOR ALL OF US TO DO, AND NOT JUST LEAVE
  • 00:54:32.170 --> 00:54:36.000
  • WITNESSING AND BEING A ROLE MODEL FOR JESUS JUST TO
  • 00:54:36.020 --> 00:54:39.230
  • PROFESSIONAL ATHLETES AND PEOPLE IN THE LIMELIGHT, BUT
  • 00:54:39.250 --> 00:54:42.060
  • UNDERSTANDING ALL OF US ARE CALLED TO BE WITNESSES,
  • 00:54:42.080 --> 00:54:44.230
  • EVERY SINGLE ONE OF US.
  • 00:54:44.250 --> 00:54:46.230
  • AND I THINK IT INSPIRES US WHEN YOU SEE PEOPLE THAT ARE
  • 00:54:46.250 --> 00:54:49.120
  • IN THE LIMELIGHT AND ARE RIGHT THERE ON THE FOREFRONT
  • 00:54:49.140 --> 00:54:54.070
  • STANDING FIRM FOR THEIR FAITH.
  • 00:54:54.090 --> 00:54:56.070
  • I THINK IT'S IMPORTANT THAT WE'RE ALL PRAYING FOR THESE
  • 00:54:56.090 --> 00:54:58.080
  • GUYS REGULARLY AND NOT EXPECTING THEM TO
  • 00:54:58.100 --> 00:55:00.220
  • BE SUPER JESUS. ONLY JESUS IS JESUS.
  • 00:55:00.240 --> 00:55:02.180
  • I MEAN, YOU GUYS ARE CLOSE, YOU KNOW?
  • 00:55:02.200 --> 00:55:04.270
  • REX, I THINK JESUS HAD A BIT MORE HAIR, BUT... [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:55:04.290 --> 00:55:08.250
  • - JUST A LITTLE BIT.
  • 00:55:08.270 --> 00:55:10.150
  • - BUT THE TRUTH IS THAT SOMETIMES, WE'VE GOT TO BE
  • 00:55:10.170 --> 00:55:14.220
  • CAREFUL NOT TO PUT UNREALISTIC EXPECTATIONS.
  • 00:55:14.240 --> 00:55:17.090
  • I'M NOT SAYING YOU EVER SAY ANYTHING BAD WORDS ON THE
  • 00:55:17.110 --> 00:55:20.220
  • FIELDS, BUT IF SOMETHING HAPPENS, THAT WE DON'T
  • 00:55:20.240 --> 00:55:23.210
  • AUTOMATICALLY THINK, "THEY SHOULDN'T DO THAT.
  • 00:55:23.230 --> 00:55:25.050
  • THEY'RE A CHRISTIAN."
  • 00:55:25.070 --> 00:55:26.220
  • YOU JUST GO THANK GOD THERE'S NO TELEVISION CAMERA
  • 00:55:26.240 --> 00:55:28.170
  • ON YOU BECAUSE YOU JUST THINK, IF WE HAD A TV CAMERA ON US
  • 00:55:28.190 --> 00:55:31.270
  • 24/7, WE WOULD BE A LOT LESS JUDGMENTAL OF ANYONE ELSE.
  • 00:55:31.290 --> 00:55:37.240
  • THAT'S WHAT I KIND OF OFTEN THINK.
  • 00:55:37.260 --> 00:55:40.040
  • I THINK SOMETIMES, AND FOR ALL OF US WATCHING, WE READ THINGS
  • 00:55:40.060 --> 00:55:42.200
  • IN THE MEDIA, 9O% OF WHICH ISN'T EVEN TRUE, ANYWAY.
  • 00:55:42.220 --> 00:55:45.060
  • WE SENSATIONALIZE THINGS.
  • 00:55:45.080 --> 00:55:47.100
  • WE BLOW THINGS UP, AND INSTEAD OF BEING THERE IN PRINCIPLE
  • 00:55:47.120 --> 00:55:50.020
  • FOR OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS THAT ARE EITHER IN THE
  • 00:55:50.040 --> 00:55:53.060
  • CELEBRITY WORLD OR IN THE SPORTING WORLD -- AND TRULY
  • 00:55:53.080 --> 00:55:55.260
  • FOR THIS GENERATION, THE PROPHETS TO THIS GENERATION
  • 00:55:55.280 --> 00:55:58.230
  • ARE ATHLETES, MOVIE STARS, OR ROCK STARS, AND THAT IS THE
  • 00:55:58.250 --> 00:56:02.000
  • WAY THAT IT IS.
  • 00:56:02.020 --> 00:56:03.140
  • SO RATHER THAN SORT OF COMING AGAINST THAT AND HOLDING
  • 00:56:03.160 --> 00:56:05.280
  • THEM TO A HIGHER STANDARD, WE OUGHT TO THANK GOD THAT HE IS
